University of Colorado–Boulder’s Gabe Sibley presents a seminar as part of the IRIM Robotics Seminar Series. The seminar will be held in the Marcus Nanotechnology Building from 12-1 p.m. and is open to the public.
Gabe Sibley joined the Department of Computer Science at the University of Colorado, Boulder as an assistant professor in fall 2014. Previously, he was an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at George Washington University and director of the Autonomous Robotics & Perception Lab.
After completing his Ph.D. at the University of Southern California, Sibley worked as a junior research fellow at Somerville College, Oxford, and a post-doctoral research assistant in the Mobile Robotics Group of the Oxford University Engineering Department, working with Professor Paul Newman.
Sibley’s core research interests are in probabilistic perception algorithms and estimation theory to enable long-term autonomous operation of mobile robotic systems, particularly in unknown environments. He has extensive experience with vision based, real-time localization and mapping systems, and he is interested in the fundamental understanding of sufficient statistics that can be used to represent the state of the world. His research uses real-time, embodied robot systems equipped with a variety of sensors, including lasers, cameras, inertial sensors, to advance and validate algorithms and knowledge representations that are useful for enabling long-term autonomous operation.
