We create new connections through advanced research and technology in vision, text, machine learning, UX and ethnography.
Our multidisciplinary approach to AI allows us to tackle challenges from different perspectives and gives greater meaning to our work.

Computer Vision

Visual search, scene parsing, human sensing, action recognition, pose estimation and lifelong learning for AR, robotics, search and autonomous driving.

Machine Learning for Optimization

Data-driven optimization, deep learning for combinatorial optimization, stochastic programming, optimization under uncertainty.

Search and Recommendation

Human-centric, multimodal strategies and modules built on accountable algorithms for transparency and trust.

Machine Learning for Robotics

Making embodied agents more robust and safer with robot learning, manipulation, navigation, task learning and reinforcement learning.

Natural Language Processing

Language technology to seamlessly communicate in an increasingly connected world: understanding, generation, translation, speech, modelling.

UX and Ethnography

We study people and their contexts to envision human-centered AI and robotic technologies.

Systemic AI

At the crossroads of AI and software engineering research, addressing the challenges of integrating AI/ML components.

Making robots useful in everyday life.
