Abstract to follow
Mohan Sridharan is a Reader in Cognitive Robot Systems in the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham (UK). He was previously a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Auckland (NZ) and prior to that, he was a faculty member at Texas Tech University. Mohan Sridharan received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin. His primary research interests include knowledge representation and reasoning, machine learning, computer vision and cognitive systems as applied to autonomous robots and adaptive agents. He develops architectures and algorithms that enable robots to collaborate with non-expert human participants, acquiring and using sensor inputs and high-level human feedback based on need and availability. Furthermore, he is interested in developing algorithms for estimation and prediction problems in application domains such as agricultural irrigation management, intelligent transportation, and climate informatics.
