BU Systems Seminar: Obtaining Robustness with Reinforcement Learning in Flight Control Systems
- Starts: 12:00 pm on Thursday, February 9, 2023
- Ends: 1:00 pm on Thursday, February 9, 2023
Speaker: Bassel Mabsout
Bio: I am Bassel Mabsout, a computer science PhD student at Boston University. My specializations include Programming Languages, Machine Learning, and Robotics. I aim to utilize the rigorous theoretical tools developed for programming languages, to improve the robustness and compositionality of the state-of-the-art machine learning methods intended for solving difficult control problems. I am presently working with Renato Mancuso (my advisor), Kate Saenko, and Siddharth Mysore on power-efficient and performant attitude control on quadrotors through Reinforcement Learning.
I am interested in: Type Theory, Metaheuristics, Category Theory, Reinforcement Learning, Agent-Based Models, Control systems, and Differentiable Computation.
