Leslie Pack Kaelbling, Panasonic Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will give a keynote speak at the upcoming TAILOR conference in Prague, on Semptember 13th 2022, 14-15 (CET).
We, as robot engineers, have to think hard about our role in the design of robots and how it interacts with learning, both in “the factory” (that is, at engineering time) and in “the wild” (that is, when the robot is delivered to a customer). I will share some general thoughts about the strategies for robot design and then talk in detail about some work I have been involved in, both in the design of an overall architecture for an intelligent robot and in strategies for learning to integrate new skills into the repertoire of an already competent robot.
