Hi, my name is Xing Li. I am a PhD student at the Technische Universität Berlin under the supervision of Professor Oliver Brock. I am associated with the Excellence Research Cluster Science of Intelligence at Berlin.
My reserach interest is to develop a novel system that allows non-experts to intuitively teach robots complex skills through demonstrations. Different to other reserach works focus on Learning from demonstration, I am focusing on how to endow the robot with the ability to efficiently explore the environment under the guidance of human demonstrations. I believe this is a possible solution to bridge the gap in perception repertoire between humans and robots is to leverage the potential provided by the robots’ embodiment. I hope my research could contribute to the robotics community in the context of bringing robots to everyday household environments and making them accessible to everyone.
