We will study the problem of endowing robots with the ability to interact with humans using natural language. The course will cover foundational material in artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, and robotics, as well as a survey of recent conference and journal papers. A collaborative final project will provide an opportunity to more deeply engage with the material and provide a jumping-off point for future research.

Familiarity with computational linguistics or robotics is helpful. Background in machine learning and artificial intelligence will also be useful. We do not expect students to have background in all of these areas; we hope that students with diverse backgrounds can learn from each other in this multi-disciplinary research area.
