  • Dr. Karol Hausman (Google) - Preventing the Next Bitter Lesson

    Tue, Feb 07, 2023 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

    Thomas Lord Department of Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Dr. Karol Hausman, Google

    Talk Title: Preventing the Next Bitter Lesson

    Series: Robotics and Autonomous Systems Seminar

    Abstract: Richard Sutton's essay titled "The Bitter Lesson" remains one of the most insightful observations of the last 70 years of AI progress. Given the recent trends and developments in AI and robotics, it might be useful to predict what our next bitter lesson will be, and how we can prevent it today. In this talk, I will explore one potential answer to this question. Based on the resulting insights, I will discuss how leveraging foundation models in robotics can benefit both. I will show various examples of how low-level tasks can be combined with large language models to enable performing complex and temporally extended instructions that were not possible before.

    Biography: Karol Hausman is a researcher at Google and an adjunct professor at Stanford. He spent 5 wonderful years at USC where he did his PhD and he's super excited to be back to share his recent findings in robot learning
