Title:Closing the Loop of Human and Robot
Date: October 30, 2020 (Friday)
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Venue: ZOOM (https://cuhk.zoom.us/j/96062514495)
Speaker: Prof. LU Cewu
Research Professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU)


This talk is toward closing the loop of Human and Robot. We present our recent research of human activity understanding and robot learning. For Human side, we present our recent research "Human Activity Knowledge Engine (HAKE)" which largely improves human activity understanding. The improvements of Alphapose (famous pose estimator) are also introduced. For robot side, we discuss our understanding of robot task and new insight “Primitive model”. Thus, GraspNet – first dynamic grasping benchmark dataset is proposed, a novel end-to-end grasping deep learning approach is also introduced. A 3D point-level semantic embedding method for object manipulation will be discussed. Finally, we will discuss how to further close the Loop of Human and Robot.
