Beyond Supervised Driving
Crowd-sourced steering does not sound as appealing as automated driving. We need to go beyond supervised learning for automated driving, including for computer vision problems seeing great progress with strong supervision today. First, we will motivate exciting scientific problems that have huge implications in the research and development of long-term large-scale autonomous robots, such as unsupervised domain adaptation, self-supervised learning, and robustness to edge cases. Second, we will talk about the robotics system perspective, especially end-to-end vs modular design and human-robot interaction. Finally, we will describe some of TRI's related research directions, especially around world-scale cloud robotics. In particular, we will discuss recent related results obtained in the ML team at TRI on state-of-the-art methods for self-supervised depth and pose prediction from monocular imagery, end-to-end panoptic segmentation, and large scale distributed deep learning on GPUs in the cloud.

Object-oriented Perception and Control
Why are infants better at sensory motor tasks than our current AI systems? We are born with learning mechanisms to map our sensory experience into objects and abstractions over them. My talk will present unsupervised approaches integrating deep/reinforcement learning and probabilistic programming, to learn about objects and goal-directed control grounded in them. I will give demonstrations in a few domains including video understanding, game playing and robotics.

Adversarial Machine Learning
Most machine learning algorithms are based on optimization: given a cost function, the algorithm adapts the parameters to reduce the cost. Adversarial machine learning is instead based on game theory: multiple "players" compete to each reduce their own cost, often at the expense of other players. In this talk I show how adversarial machine learning is related to many active machine learning research areas.
