From SLAM to Spatial AI


You’ll be able to watch this seminar right here at 1PM EST (10AM PST) on Might 15th.

Summary: To allow the following technology of sensible robots and units which may really work together with their environments, Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) will progressively develop right into a common real-time geometric and semantic `Spatial AI’ notion functionality. I’ll give many examples from our work on steadily rising visible SLAM functionality through the years. Nonetheless, a lot analysis should nonetheless be completed to realize true Spatial AI efficiency. A key situation is how estimation and machine studying parts can be utilized and educated collectively as we proceed to seek for one of the best long-term scene representations to allow clever interplay. Additional, to allow the efficiency and effectivity required by actual merchandise, laptop imaginative and prescient algorithms should be developed along with the sensors and processors which kind full programs, and I’ll cowl analysis on imaginative and prescient algorithms for non-standard visible sensors and graph-based computing architectures.

Biography: Andrew Davison is Professor of Robotic Imaginative and prescient and Director of the Dyson Robotics Laboratory at Imperial School London. His long-term analysis focus is on SLAM (Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping) and its evolution in the direction of common `Spatial AI’: laptop imaginative and prescient algorithms which allow robots and different synthetic units to map, localise inside and in the end perceive and work together with the 3D areas round them. Together with his analysis group and collaborators he has constantly developed and demonstrated breakthrough programs, together with MonoSLAM, KinectFusion, SLAM++ and CodeSLAM, and up to date prizes embody Greatest Paper at ECCV 2016 and Greatest Paper Honourable Point out at CVPR 2018. He has additionally had robust involvement in taking this expertise into actual functions, particularly by his work with Dyson on the design of the visible mapping system contained in the Dyson 360 Eye robotic vacuum cleaner and as co-founder of utilized SLAM start-up SLAMcore. He was elected Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2017.

Robotics Right this moment Seminars

“Robotics Right this moment – A sequence of technical talks” is a digital robotics seminar sequence. The purpose of the sequence is to deliver the robotics neighborhood collectively throughout these difficult instances. The seminars are scheduled on Fridays at 1PM EDT (10AM PDT) and are open to the general public. The format of the seminar consists of a technical speak stay captioned and streamed through Net and Twitter (@RoboticsSeminar), adopted by an interactive dialogue between the speaker and a panel of college, postdocs, and college students that can average viewers questions.

Keep updated with upcoming seminars with the Robotics Right this moment Google Calendar (or obtain the .ics file) and examine previous seminars on the Robotics Right this moment Youtube Channel. And observe us on Twitter!

Seminars shall be broadcast at 1PM EST (10AM PST) right here.
