-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 ​robots, and 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**//​
-===== Working With Us =====+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.
-<​html><​!-- +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?​ //
-  * We have multiple open positions for [[jobs|doctoral students and postdocs]]. +
-  * [[asstprof|Assistant Professor position in computer and biological vision]] (apply by 6 November 2014; earliest starting date 5 January, 2015) +

-===== News ===== +Our research addresses complete perception-action loopsfrom 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.
