-Research at %%IIS%% ​is situated at the intersection of computer vision, ​machine learning ​and robotics.  Much of our work is motivated by the perceptual needs of autonomous ​robotsand focuses on visual inference as it serves activity such as grasping ​Other ​areas of interest include ​the psychology and biology of perception, and video analysis ​for applications such as sports or human-computer interaction.+//**Making robots learn to perceive and act with understanding**//​ 
 + 
 +At %%IIS%% ​we enable autonomous robots to perceive and act flexibly and robustly in unstructured environments,​ leveraging machine learning methods to build perceptual, motor and reasoning skills. 
 + 
 +We seek to answer ​the question: //How can we enable robots to acquire the knowledge and understanding they require to interact sensibly with unstructured environments?​ // 
 + 
 +Our research addresses complete perception-action loops, from computer vision ​to grasping and manipulationusing reactive algorithms ​and/or cognitive models.  Much of our work uses machine learning to enable ​robots ​to synthesize ​and improve complex and robust sensorimotor behavior with experienceRelated ​areas of interest include ​human-robot interactionimage and video analysis, and visual neuroscience.
