I just joined Nvidia Research to start a Robotics Research Lab in Seattle. The goal of this new lab is to develop the next generation of robots that can robustly manipulate the physical world and interact with people in a natural way. Toward this goal, the lab will bring together a diverse, interdisciplinary research team working on core robotics topics ranging from control and perception to task planning and collaboration, and critical related areas such as computer vision, deep learning, and natural language processing.
The lab will conduct basic research; lab members will be encouraged to publish their work and share code open source. It will be located near the University of Washington to enable close collaboration with students and faculty at UW.
I’m very excited about this new opportunity, stay tuned for further updates!
