Socially Competent Robot Navigation

Chris Mavrogiannis, Cornell University – Abstract: Crowded human environments such as pedestrian scenes constitute challenging domains for mobile robots, for a variety of reasons including the heterogeneity of pedestrians’ decision making mechanisms, the lack of universal formal rules regulating traffic, the lack of channels of…

Personalizing Personal Robots

Dan Grollman, Misty Robotics – Abstract: In this talk I’ll present some ideas on how to make your robot truly your own. Beyond sensing, thinking, and acting, robots need to feel and express their own unique interpretation of the world around them, and adapt themselves…

On the Self in Selfie

Christoph Kirsch, University of Salzburg – Abstract: Selfie is a self-contained 64-bit, 10-KLOC implementation of (1) a self-compiling compiler written in a tiny subset of C called C* targeting a tiny subset of 64-bit RISC-V called RISC-U, (2) a self-executing RISC-U emulator, (3) a self-hosting…

The Future of Cyber-autonomy

David Brumley, Carnegie Mellon University – Abstract: My vision is to automatically check and defend the world’s software from exploitable bugs. In order to achieve this vision, I am building technology, called Mayhem, that shifts the attack/defend game away from the current manual approaches for…

Efficient paths in ordinal weighted graphs

Luca Schafer, Technische Universität Kaiserslautern – Abstract: We investigate the single-source-single-destination “shortest” paths problem in acyclic graphs with ordinal weighted arc costs. We define the concepts of ordinal dominance and efficiency for paths and their associated ordinal levels, respectively. Further, we show that the number…
