Edward Johns

The Robot Learning Lab at Imperial College London is developing the next generation of robots empowered by artificial intelligence, for assisting us all in everyday environments. Our research lies at the intersection of robotic control, computer vision, and machine learning, and we are currently studying how robots can learn to physically interact with objects, using their arms and hands. Applications include domestic robots (e.g. tidying the home), manufacturing robots (e.g. assembling products in a factory), and warehouse robots (e.g. picking and placing from/into storage). In particular, we are investigating real-world applications of deep learning for vision-based robot manipulation, using various combinations of reinforcement learning, imitation learning, and model-based control. The lab is led by Dr Edward Johns in the Department of Computing.
