CENG788: Learning and development in robotics

Description:

The course will focus on the study of learning and development methods to robots to enable them to acquire new skills and/or adapt to the changes in their environment. In this sense, it is positioned in the junction of robotics, machine learning and cognitive science (and psychology). Robotics is a challenging test-bed for learning and development, and often uncovers implicit assumptions and shortcomings of learning methods that are developed in more theoretical and abstract domains. The course will briefly introduce the main tracks of research in learning and development and will focus on how these methods can be applied to problems on robots. Students with different backgrounds are welcome.
