CITRIS Research Exchange Seminar with Anca Dragan

About the speaker: 

Anca is an Assistant Professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department at UC Berkeley. She runs the InterACT lab, focusing on enabling robots to work with, around, and in support of people. Her goal is for robots to autonomously generate their behavior in a way that moves beyond functionality and formally accounts for interaction with humans. This combines optimal control, machine learning, and cognitive science, with applications in collaborative manipulation and autonomous driving. Anca got her PhD in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University on planning intent-expressive robot motion. She has been honored by the Sloan Fellowship, MIT TR35, the Okawa award, and an NSF CAREER award.
