Opportunity Description

This research develops alogorithms that enable autonomous robots to participate in small human/robot teams with minimal human oversight. The project utilizes techniques from the fields of Statistical Learning Theory, Artificial Intelligence, and Perception to design and test algorithms that enable the robot to understand the activity of the humans around it. Recognizing and understanding team behaviors from visual and other sensory data is particularly important for this project. Research opportunities exist in the following areas : • Recognizing and understanding group behavior - Sensor data fusion - Managing uncertainty - Optimizing individual behavors to achieve team goals - Mixed human/robot teams - Strategic reasoning - Multi-agent systems
