Oct. 5 - Shutterstock DLS: Using Computer Vision in Robotics Systems


Professor Martial Hebert from The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon will discuss 'Research challenges in using computer vision in robotics systems.'

Abstract: The past decade has seen a remarkable increase in the level of performance of computer vision techniques, including with the introduction of effective deep learning techniques. Much of this progress is in the form of rapidly increasing performance on standard, curated datasets. However, translating these results into operational vision systems for robotics applications remains a formidable challenge. This talk with explore some of the fundamental questions at the boundary between computer vision and robotics that need to be addressed. This includes introspection/self-awareness of performance, anytime algorithms for computer vision, multi-hypothesis generation, rapid learning and adaptation. The discussion will be illustrated by examples from autonomous air and ground robots. Bio:

The event takes place in Room 120 of New Computer Science at 2:30 on Oct. 5.
