Robot Programming by Demonstration Based on Machine Learning

Lunch seminar 6 June 2020

The Corona crisis prevents the physical meetings and discussions that have so far been a central part of AI Lund's outreach activities. But in order to continue dialogue and joint learning, we now try a series of online lunch seminars. Together we watch one or more presentations from previous AI Lund events for 20-30 minutes. Then an expert, often. the original speaker, are there to answer questions for 10-15 minutes. You can also ask questions in the text chat during the video. The presentations can be in Swedish or English, and you can ask questions in both languages.

On 6 May we watch the presentation that Dr Martin Karlsson gave at the AI Lund fika-to-fika workshop on AI Tehchnologies 30 August 2019.

Title: Robot Programming by Demonstration Based on Machine Learnin

Speaker: Dr Martin Karlsson, Affiliated with Lund University, dept of Automatic Control

Abstract: Whereas humans would prefer to program on a high level of abstraction, for instance through natural language, robots require very detailed instructions, for instance time series of desired joint torques. In this research, we aim to meet the robots half way, by enabling programming by demonstration.
