Self-driving cars can be safer and more efficient when they reason about latent states related to behavior.
Unmanned rotorcraft can guide themselves to a safe landing without power using a maneuver called autorotation.
Tree search algorithms for POMDPs
A primary contribution area is in tree search for POMDPs. In particular, we have pioneered the application of these algorithms to problems with continuous domains.
