Robotics and Machine Learning

Human-Machine Interaction

Computational Neuroscience

  • Robot reaching, grasping, and manipulation.

  • Interplay of multiple learning systems, including supervised- and reinforcement-style learning algorithms.

  • Robot learning through human interaction.

  • Interactive art.

  • Multi-modal interfaces for the management of cognitive bandwidth.

  • Machine learning techniques for adaptive interface behavior.

  • Mobile virtual/augmented/mixed reality with particular focus on robot interfaces.

  • Wearable computing

  • Brain-machine interfaces.

  • Computational motor control with an emphasis on the cortical mechanisms of looking, reaching, grasping, and manipulation.

  • Computational models of learning in the cerebellum, basal ganglia, and neo-cortex.

  • Interaction of muscle, spinal cord, and limb dynamics.
