Guarav Sukhatme: Robots at sea | CMU RI Seminar


curated by | April 10, 2016

“Gaurav S. Sukhatme is Dean’s Professor of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at the University of Southern California (USC). He currently serves as the Chairman of the Computer Science department.” His abstract follows: “Underwater robotics is undergoing a transformation. Advances in AI and machine learning are enabling a new generation of underwater robots to make intelligent decisions (where to sample? how to navigate?) by reasoning about their environment (what is the shipping and water forecast?). At USC, we are engaged in a long-term effort to explore ideas and develop algorithms that will lead to persistent, autonomous underwater robots. In this talk, I will discuss some of our recent results focusing on two problems in adaptive sampling: underwater change detection and biological sampling. Time permitting; I will also present recent work on hazard avoidance, allowing underwater robots to operate in regions where there is substantial ship traffic.”
