Natural Language Processing / Speech Processing

Understand human language.

Natural language is the most intuitive interface for most people and situations. By advancing human-robot interaction (HRI) via language, we aim to achieve “robots for everyone”, and a world where even non-experts can make use of such transformative technology. Our research in HRI spans multiple modalities and combines research in NLP, scene understanding, speech recognition, robotics, and augmented reality, in order to provide robust understanding of a wide variety of interactions.
