Sets state of the art (SOTA) on the CIFAR-10 dataset and matches SOTA on ImageNet at mobile scale in March 2019. Proposes Differentiable Hyperparameter Search and Cosine Power Annealing.
A dynamic robotics dataset which serves as a valuable resource to researchers across a broad range of topics. Proposes HyperTree Neural Architecture Search (NAS) for refining neural network models. CoSTAR Block Stacking Dataset Website
Defines perception and spatial reasoning abstractions to enable end-users to create robust task plans. Winner of the 2016 KUKA Innovation Award in a competition on flexible manufacturing.
A user study showing the CoSTAR flexible manufacturing system is effective for specifying task plans.
I’ve worked on a robotic hip replacement surgical assistant robot.
Generic Robotics Library
Farming Automation: I’ve worked on autonomous orchard and field tractors.
Part of Boost C++ Libraries,
varray, is a sequence container like
std::vector with the benefits of statically allocated storage as found in
std::array. Acknowledgments: Boost.Geometry, Boost.Container
Personal Projects from 2015 or earlier
In 2007 I built a robot that can be controlled by Wii remote.
I was an engineer for Fringe Racing, a team which designs and builds human powered, ultra light carbon composite vehicles. Fringe Racing placed first in the Carnegie Mellon Sweepstakes Design Competition in 2006, 2007 and 2008. Elected Chairman of the Sweepstakes Committee for 2009; led the school wide organization with 13 teams and 250 members.
Inertial Electrostatic Confinement fusion reactor
In High School I researched an Inertial Electrostatic Confinement fusion reactor which achieved plasma.
