Learning to Perceive and to Act – Disentangling Tales from (Structured) Latent Space

Abstract: Unsupervised learning is experiencing a renaissance. Driven by an abundance of unlabelled data and the advent of deep generative models, machines are now able to synthesise complex images, videos and sounds. In robotics, one of the most promising features of these models – the ability to learn structured latent spaces – is gradually gaining traction. […]

Robotic contributions to minimally invasive surgery and targeted therapy

Abstract: Starting from a recent analysis of the state of the art, the speaker will introduce the main challenges of surgical robotics, paying attention to the problem of generating therapeutic effects with minimally invasive solutions. She will present case-studies coming from her 25 years of experience in the field. In this research path, contributions from […]
