      CSU graduate students: In Spring 2018, I am offering CIS 693 (cross-listed as EEC 693/793), a course on Autonomous Intelligent Robotics. Students will learn ROS and basic AI concepts, and will use real robots in assignments/projects! This is an early version of the course.

News

      • 12/2017, I gave a talk on service robots to researchers at Uru Videos -- a NYC-based Startup doing very interesting work on AI and computer vision.
      • 10/2017, I am co-organizing the AAAI 2018 Spring Symposium on Goal Directed Autonomy in Stanford University CA, March 2018.
      • 08/2017, I will speak at the AAAI Fall Symposium on Human-Agent Groups on integrated reasoning and planning (IRP) in November 2017.
      • 06/2017, I will speak in the NEOACM embedded folder icon panel discussion on AI, We Come in Peace in September 2017.
