Our current research is primarily studying Deep Reinforcement Learning for industrial robotics and industrial processes, where the robot or agent, through its own trial and error, learns to optimize its own behaviour or process. The learning process can take its outset in the agent exploring the environment, but furthermore from human expert demonstrations (apprenticeship learning, inverse reinforcement learning).
Many interesting areas are connected to our work with self-learning agents, especially for industrial applications, e.g.: Human-Robot Cooperation/Collaboration, Human-Robot Interfaces, Industrial Application of Mobile Manipulators, Robot Skills for Intuitive and Safe Robot Programming, and Identification & Application of Robot Skills for Industrial Applications.
