Chelsea Finn receives Samsung AI Researcher of the Year

Congratulations to Professor Chelsea Finn. She has been awarded an inaugural Samsung AI Researcher of the Year award. Presented at Samsung AI Forum 2020, the five recipients are AI researchers from around the world.

At the event, Chelsea's lecture was titled, "From Few-Shot Adaptation to Uncovering Symmetries". In her lecture, she introduced meta learning technologies in which AI, in spite of changes in data, can adapt swiftly to untrained data, and proceeded to share success stories of the application of these technologies in the areas of robotics and new drug candidate material design.

Chelsea's research interests lie in the ability to enable robots and other agents to develop broadly intelligent behavior through learning and interaction. Her work lies at the intersection of machine learning and robotic control, including topics such as end-to-end learning of visual perception and robotic manipulation skills, deep reinforcement learning of general skills from autonomously collected experience, and meta-learning algorithms that can enable fast learning of new concepts and behaviors.

Please join us in congratulating Chelsea on this well-deserved distinction! Additional awards went to Prof. Kyunghyun Cho (New York University), Prof. Seth Flaxman (Imperial College London), Prof. Jiajun Wu (Stanford), and Prof. Cho-Jui Hsieh (UCLA).
