Vittorio Ferrari

Host: Olga Russakovsky

February 28, 2017, 3:00-4:00 p.m., Newell Simon Hall 1507
PhD Thesis Defense: The theory, implementation, and evaluation of spring mass running on ATRIAS, a bipedal robot
Albert Wu
Carnegie Mellon University

We expect legged robots to be highly mobile. Human walking and running can execute quick changes in speed and direction, even on non-flat ground. Indeed, analysis of simplified models shows that these quantities can be tightly controlled by adjusting the leg placement between steps, and that leg placement can also compensate for disturbances including changes in the ground height.

PhD Thesis Proposal: Data-Driven Visual Forecasting
Jacob Charles Walker
Carnegie Mellon University

Understanding the temporal dimension of images is a fundamental part of computer vision. Humans are able to interpret how the entities in an image will change over time.
