About Us

The main theme of research in the Bot Intelligence Group (BIG) is to develop robotic intelligence ranging from the low-level autonomy to the high-level cognitive abilities. We aim to develop robots that can cooperate or collaborate with humans in shared environments, learning to improve themselves over time through continual on- and off-line training, exploration, and interactions with humans and/or environments. Towards this general goal, we strive to answer research questions on how to make robots to understand various semantic contexts of physical and/or social environments, act in both task-effective and socially-compliant manners, and communicate their internal states with other agents in intuitive ways.

We are proud to be part of the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University.
