Weiyu Liu

I am a Robotics Ph.D. student at Georgia Institute of Technology, where I am advised by professor Sonia Chernova. Prior to joining the PhD program, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Tech.

My research examines semantic reasoning techniques for robotic systems, which enable robots to encode and use semantic knowledge, including concepts, facts, and beliefs about the world. I am interested in developing machine learning techniques for performing inference on semantic knowledge, such as large-scale knowledge graphs. I am also passionate about applying knowledge reasoning to challenges associated with real-world robotic operations, such as task-oriented grasping.
