AI Seminar Series 2020: Angel Chang on Grounding Natural Language to 3D

The Artificial Intelligence (AI) Seminar is a weekly meeting at the University of Alberta where researchers interested in AI can share their research. Presenters include both local speakers from the University of Alberta and visitors from other institutions. Topics related in any way to artificial intelligence, from foundational theoretical work to innovative applications of AI techniques to new fields and problems, are explored.

On June 12, 2020, Dr. Angel Xuan Chang, Canada CIFAR AI Chair at Amii and Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Simon Fraser University, presented “Grounding Natural Language to 3D”.

In pop culture depictions of the future, household robots are often able to do such things as bring us coffee or find lost glasses. But what would it take to actually make this possible? In her talk, Chang explores how agents might handle natural, unspecified language to execute simple commands in the real world, and introduces the new task of 3D object localization in scenes using natural language descriptions.
