Research project title: 
A Framework for Knowledge Acquisition and Grounding through Situated Interactive Dialogue and Visual Demonstrations
Principal goal for project: 
To develop and implement a framework for open-domain lifelong learning of concepts and tasks through situated interactive dialogue and visual demonstrations.
Research project: 

The project aims at developing and implementing a framework that would enable robots to operate robustly in human environments and to communicate effectively with people using natural language. To this end, the project can be divided into two main lines of work. First, we will develop algorithms for lifelong learning of objects through interactive dialogue and visual perception. Second, we will develop methods for learning tasks through situated natural language instructions and visual demonstrations.

About me: 

My current research interests include lifelong learning, situated interactive learning, hierarchical task learning, language grounding, learning through dialogue and visual demonstration, interactive semantic mapping, and cognitive systems.
