Please note, this demonstration is only for King's students and staff.

How many chores at home or work would you rather delegate to a robot? Our autonomous robot is learning to do as many of those as possible! We research planning and reinforcement learning for lifelong, robust, and adaptable autonomy, and their integration with other areas of robotics for real-life deployment.

We will demonstrate tasks developed for the RoboCup@Home competition, an international initiative meant to foster research in service robots for the home. Tasks that we implemented for (this and other) competitions before include: serving as a waiter in a coffee shop, taking the lift with people, and acting on behalf of the host at a party.

The demonstration is being run by Dr Matteo Leonetti. He is a senior lecturer in autonomous systems. He received his PhD in Computer Engineering from Sapienza University of Rome. Before joining King's he was a lecturer at the University of Leeds, a post-doc at the University of Texas at Austin, and a post-doc at the Italian Institute of Technology. He directs the Sensible Robots Research Group at King's College London.

This demo is in-person. Registration is not required.

This demo is part of the King's Festival of Artificial Intelligence, running from Tuesday 21 to Saturday 25 May 2024.
