I made a small adventure game called Fallgate with my friend Cooper. It's about questing through a forest while vanquishing blops and eating doughnuts.
Learning to Write with Cooperative Discriminators
We propose a method for globally coherent text production by guiding a language generator with a committee of discriminators.
Verb Physics: Relative Physical Knowledge of Actions and Objects
We investigate how our usage of verbs implies phsical relations between the objects we talk about.
Disentangling learning and the creative process.
Robot Programming by Demonstration with Situated Spatial Language Understanding
We build a system for programming robots with natural language.
Programming by Demonstration with Situated Semantic Parsing
We use semantic parsing to create a better natural language interface for robot programming by demonstration.
Robot Programming by Demonstration with Crowdsourced Action Fixes
We use crowdsourcing with active learning to help robot programming by demonstration.
I build and open-source small tools as I work.
Accelerating Imitation Learning through Crowdsourcing
We explore how crowdsourcing can improve goal-based imitation learning in robotics.
I built a tiny open-source web publishing platform to allow me to write and update content as easily as possible.
Grounding Antonym Adjective Pairs through Interaction
We use generative classifiers to interactively teach a NAO robot to distinguish antonym pairs of adjectives.
