    Title: Efficiently Learning Human Preferences for Proactive Robot Assistance in Assembly Tasks

    Date: 09/20/22 (Tuesday)
    Time: 1:30 pm

    Hybrid Presentation

    Location: SAL 322

    Abstract:
    I focus on enabling robots to proactively assist assembly workers by anticipating their future actions. Since each worker can have their own preferred way of performing an assembly, assistive robots must learn the individual preferences of their users to anticipate their actions accurately. Previous work in this field learns human preferences in the form of a policy or a reward function from user demonstrations in the given task. However, obtaining demonstrations can be tedious and time-consuming in actual assemblies. While recent approaches try to efficiently learn user preferences through actively generated queries instead of demonstrations, they do not leverage any prior knowledge of the users' preferences. In this work, I propose exploiting (1) similarities between preferences of different users in a given task and (2) similarities between different tasks performed by a given user to learn the user's preference efficiently. Based on our insight that different users can be grouped into a small set of dominant preferences, I present a novel approach for efficiently inferring the preferences of new users by matching their actions to a dominant preference cluster. For leveraging similarities between tasks, I propose learning user preferences as a function of task-agnostic features (like the mental and physical effort of actions) such that we can transfer their preferences from a canonical to an actual assembly task. I evaluate these approaches in user studies of real-world assembly tasks and show how each prior source of user preference can improve the accuracy of anticipating user actions. I also present a human-robot assembly study that shows how proactively assisting users by anticipating their actions can reduce human-idle time and improve user experience. Finally, I discuss our proposal for jointly leveraging similarities between users and tasks to accurately anticipate user actions.

  • Catalyst Discovery for Metal-Free, Photoredox CO2 Reduction

    Tue, Sep 20, 2022 @ 04:00 PM - 05:20 PM

    Mork Family Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Shaama Sharada, Assistant Professor

    Talk Title: Catalyst Discovery for Metal-Free, Photoredox CO2 Reduction

    Abstract: Organic photoredox catalysis will be an important part of an energy-efficient, sustainable future as these
    catalysts can access highly reactive states upon excitation and quenching to carry out reactions that are
    otherwise thermally inaccessible or energy-intensive. Our group aims to identify sustainable photoredox
    routes for CO2 utilization. Prior experiments show that a simple organic chromophore, p-terphenyl, can
    reduce and transform CO2 into useful molecules such as amino acids. However, the steps of the photoredox
    cycle and reasons for low turnover numbers of these catalysts are poorly understood. Our goal is to utilize
    quantum chemistry methods to delineate mechanisms of key steps in this cycle and leverage these insights to
    drive discovery of novel chromophores that are both active and yield high turnover numbers. Thus far, we
    have demonstrated that the electron transfer (ET) step from the p-terphenyl radical anion to CO2 is adiabatic,
    and ET barriers are lowered when electron-donating groups are substituted to p- terminal positions of the
    catalyst. To probe degradation pathways from the excited state, we are establishing a protocol for calculation
    and characterization of excited-state donor-acceptor charge transfer complexes in collaboration with the
    Dawlaty group (USC). We are also taking our first steps towards driving discovery of new chromophores by
    implementing a genetic algorithm (GA) whose fitness function factors in both catalyst activity and
    degradation resistance by means of simple descriptors obtained from routine DFT calculations. The GA yields
    several candidates that are more viable than experimentally studied terphenyls, highlighting the importance of
    automated computational tools in accelerating experimental efforts.

    Biography: Dr. Shaama Mallikarjun Sharada is the WiSE Gabilan Assistant Professor in the Mork Family Department of
    Chemical Engineering and Materials Science and Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at USC.
    Her research interests span the development and application of quantum chemistry methods to design catalysts
    for sustainable chemistry transformations. Her group is developing efficient algorithms, inspired from signal
    processing, for advancing sophisticated rate theories in catalysis. The group is also establishing frameworks for
    catalyst design and discovery towards efficient natural gas conversion and light-assisted carbon dioxide
    utilization. Dr. Sharada received her Bachelors and Masters in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute
    of Technology, Bombay (India) where she was awarded the Institute Gold Medal. She received her PhD in
    Chemical Engineering from UC Berkeley in 2015 for developing efficient reaction path search algorithms for
    catalysis. As a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University, her work spanned the development of machine
    learning density functionals and surface chemistry benchmarking databases. She is a recipient of the 2022
    inaugural Chevron Research Innovation Award (USC) and the 2020 ACS Petroleum Research Fund Doctoral New Investigator Award. She is also a Scialog Fellow for the Negative Emissions Science initiative.

    Speaker: Luca Geretti, Computer Science Department at the University of Verona (Italy)

    Talk Title: High-Order Differential Inclusions for Continuous Decomposition of Nonlinear Dynamical Systems

    Series: Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things

    Abstract: Formal verification of nonlinear dynamical systems particularly suffers the curse of dimensionality. While linear systems of tens of variables can be successfully analyzed, it is not the case of systems where symbolic methods are generally infeasible. A numerical approach to the problem would require decoupling the system in order to reduce the dimensions of each subsystem and consequently mitigate the problem. In this lecture we propose a solution based on high-order differential inclusions, which can be used to replace coupling variables with bounded input noises. The formulation for differential inclusions for nonlinear systems is provided, along with a discussion on its implementation in the Ariadne library for rigorous numerics. We also compare the performance and scalability with the current state-of-the-art on tools for the analysis of nonlinear open dynamical systems.

    Biography: Luca Geretti is currently a research associate at the Computer Science department of the University of Verona (Italy). He obtained his master's degree in Electronics Engineering at the University of Udine (Italy) with a thesis on "Design and FPGA implementation of stochastic feed-forward neural networks" and his PhD degree in Computer Engineering from the same institute, while switching his focus to "Autonomy and collaboration in ad-hoc mobile networks". He then moved to Verona to work on formal verification of nonlinear hybrid systems. He currently leads the Nonlinear group for the yearly ARCH competition of formal verification tools, where he also participates with the Ariadne software of which is the main engineer. From October 2022 he will be a research scholar at the University of Southern California.

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Jane Bae, Caltech

    Talk Title: Wall-models for large-eddy simulations of turbulent flows via scientific multi-agent reinforcement learning

    Abstract: The predictive capabilities of turbulent flow simulations, critical for aerodynamic design and weather prediction, hinge on the choice of turbulence models. The abundance of data from experiments and simulations and the advent of machine learning have provided a boost to turbulence modeling efforts. However, simulations of turbulent flows remain hindered by the inability of heuristics and supervised learning to model the near-wall dynamics. We address this challenge by introducing scientific multi-agent reinforcement learning (SciMARL) for the discovery of wall models for large-eddy simulations (LES). In SciMARL, discretization points act also as cooperating agents that learn to supply the LES closure model. The agents self-learn using limited data and generalize to higher Reynolds numbers in reproducing key flow quantities. We test the discovered wall model to canonical flat plate boundary layers, which shows good predictable capabilities outside the Reynolds numbers used to train the model. We will discuss extensions to this model for flows with pressure-gradient effects.


    Biography: Jane Bae is an Assistant Professor of Aerospace at the Graduate Aerospace Laboratories at Caltech. She received her Ph.D. in Computational and Mathematical Engineering from Stanford University in 2018. She was a postdoctoral fellow in the Graduate Aerospace Laboratories at Caltech and the Institute for Applied Computational Science at Harvard University before joining the Caltech faculty. Her main research focuses on computational fluid mechanics, in particular on modeling and control of wall-bounded turbulence.
