Thesis Defense: Learning to ground natural language instructions to plans (Naked Gopalan)

Tuesday, July 23, 2019

4:00pm - 6:00pm

Watson Center for Information Technology (CIT)

In order to intuitively and efficiently collaborate with humans, robots must learn to complete tasks specified using natural language. Natural language instructions can have many intentions, for example, they can specify a goal condition, or provide guidance to achieve the goal, or provide constraints that must be satisfied in achieving goals. Given a natural language command a robot needs to ground the instruction to an action sequence executed in the environment, which satisfies the request along with all its constraints and guidances.
