Women in Robotics Boston
Technical Talk: Situated Multi-Party Human-Robot Interactions by Dr. Marynel Vázquez
Wednesday, Aug 25, 2021
7:30pm - 8:30pm EDT
[Shown to members only]
Women in Robotics Boston partnered with the Interactive Machines Group at Yale University led by Dr. Marynel Vázquez to learn more about the fundamental problems in social interactions between robots and multiple people. Join us for a technical talk on fundamental principles and algorithms to enable autonomous perception of human behavior, group social phenomena, and the social context of human-robot interactions.
Dr. Marynel Vázquez is an Assistant Professor in Yale’s Computer Science Department, where she leads the Interactive Machines Group. Her research focuses on advancing multi-party human-robot interaction, both by studying social group phenomena and developing perception and decision making algorithms that enable autonomous robot behavior. Marynel received her bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering from Universidad Simón Bolívar in 2008, and obtained her M.S. and Ph.D. in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University in 2013 and 2017, respectively. Before joining Yale, Marynel was a collaborator of Disney Research and a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Stanford Vision & Learning Lab.
