"What is CRISP? Give me a crisp answer, please..."
CRISP stands for Cognitive Robotics and Intelligent Systems for the People.
We do research in Robotics and AI, developing systems that will ultimately improve the life of people; we also aim to better understand human cognitive processes, by creating computational models that we test on our robots.
More specifically, we focus on the "intelligence of the hands", and we aim to create robots that can use their hands as smartly as humans do.
Topics include: dexterous manipulation, visuo-haptic perception and exploration,
grasping, object affordances, tool use, eye-hand coordination,
human-robot interaction and collaboration, tactile and force sensing.
The CRISP group has been funded in 2019 and is led by Dr Lorenzo Jamone.
We are part of the centre for Advanced Robotics @ Queen Mary (ARQ),
and we belong to the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science (EECS)
of the Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
