Interactive Summarization and Exploration of Top Aggregate Query Answers

Master's Defense

Date and Time
-

We present a system for summarization and interactive exploration of high-valued aggregate query answers to make a large set of possible answers more informative to the user. Our system outputs a set of clusters on the high-valued query answers showing their common properties such that the clusters are diverse as much as possible to avoid repeating information, and cover a certain number of top original answers as indicated by the user.

3D Object Representations for Robot Perception

Ph. D. Defense
Speaker Name
Benjamin Burchfiel
Location
LSRC D344
Date and Time
-

Reasoning about 3D objects is one of the most critical perception problems robots face; outside of navigation, most interactions between a robot and its environment are object-centric. Object-centric robot perception has long relied on maintaining an explicit database of 3D object models with the assumption that encountered objects will be exact copies of entries in the database; however, as robots move into unstructured environments such as human homes, the variation of encountered objects increases and maintaining an explicit object database becomes infeasible.
