Designing machines that adapt to people in real time for a more collaborative human-robot experience.

At Northeastern’s Institute for Experiential Robotics, we’re creating artificial intelligence that learns from human experiences in order to build robots that operate seamlessly with people at work and at home.
  • An Emerging Field

    Building on advances in adaptive robotics, our work focuses on developing technologies that help machines translate and adapt to the way humans behave in changing environments.

  • Use-Inspired Research

    Experiential robotics has a wide range of potential applications, including manufacturing industries like seafood processing and distribution, as well as healthcare.

  • An Interdisciplinary Approach

    Because of the inherent complexity of the human-robot experience, we collaborate with engineers, ethicists, sociologists, and economists, as well as other academic institutions, industry, and government.
