Interactive Assistive Robots for People with Impairments
November 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This event will be available live at SEMI, as well as over Zoom. Get to SEMI by 6:30pm to network – and enjoy great pizza and refreshments! All attendees MUST register using the Eventbrite form (see link).
For people with motor impairments, assistive robotic manipulators can help them perform daily activities such as pick-and-place tasks, opening doors, pushing buttons, eating, and even personal hygiene. As such, these robotic devices have the potential to allow such individuals to regain some independence in performing these tasks. However, human interaction with these manipulators can often be very challenging.
In this talk, Maria Kyrarini will describe a robot learning framework that empowers a robotic device to automatically generate a sequence of actions from unstructured spoken language, along with the preliminary results form her recent study with 30 participants to evaluate this framework. She will also present the preliminary results from her recent grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) on developing a personalized assistive robotic system that assesses cognitive fatigue in persons with paralysis.
