Short presentation

My research area is on the crossroad of social robotics, machine learning and ethics. I try to find new computational methods to allow robots to evaluate how "good" (in an ethical sense) their actions are. The goal is to create a system that can autonomously learn such good behaviors through interaction with humans. The work is part of the ANIMATAS project and funded by EU's Horizon 2020 program.

Keywords: machine learning deep learning reinforcement learning social robotics ethical behavior human-computer interaction
