May 05, 2024 I am a recipient of the NWO AIned XS grant provided by the Dutch Research Council and the AIned Foundation. In this projct we will be developing new methods using Large Language Models for policy generation for real-world robotics. Sounds interesting? Keep a look out for our postdoc advertisement and more details in the near future!
May 05, 2024 I will be giving an invited talk about our research on co-adapting robot morphology and behaviour with reinforcement learning at the EARL workshop. Are you also working on Co-Adaptation/Co-Design of robots or evolutionary robots? Consider submitting a workshop paper and let’s chat at R:SS 2024 in Delft, The Netherlands!
