Sanne van Waveren
I obtained a PSY Bachelor degree and a CS Master degree (cum laude) at the University of Twente, the Netherlands.
My current work revolves around enabling robots to gather additional behaviors during deployment. It is impossible to anticipate all possible cases at which a robot/interaction may breakdown. Endowing robots with the ability to collect additional input on the fly is therefore crucial for them to succeed in the real world. I am interested in how we can exploit our ‘collective intelligence’ (common knowledge) to let non-experts (people who do not necessarily have programming or robotics experience) provide input to the robot.
