Course Overview

This is a project course, with no homeworks and no lectures. We will spend the quarter working on different research projects related to the STAIR (STanford AI Robot) project.

Specifically, students will work in teams on different aspects of STAIR, such as computer vision, robot navigation, mapping, robot manipulation, spoken dialog, NLP, and robot building (hardware). The goal is to have each team do a publishable piece of research work on STAIR.

We will discuss project ideas during the first class meeting. An initial list of project suggestions is also given here, though students are also welcome to propose their own projects.
