  • [July 2020] Our new algorithm, Generalization Through Imitation (GTI), will appear at RSS 2020. It enables learning visuomotor control from human demonstrations and generalizing to new long-horizon tasks by leveraging latent compositional structures. See our paper, website, and video for more details.
