The Applied AI Lab (A2I) explores core challenges in AI and Machine Learning to enable robots to robustly and effectively operate in complex, real-world environments. Our research is guided by our vision to create machines which constantly improve through use in their dedicated workspace. In doing so we explore a number of intellectual challenges at the heart of robot learning such as machine introspection in perception and decision making, data efficient learning from demonstration, task-based and transfer learning and the learning of complex tasks via a curriculum of less complex ones. All the while our intellectual curiosity remains grounded in real-world robotics domains such as autonomous driving, logistics, manipulation or space exploration.
