Miguel Saavedra-Ruiz

Student M.Sc., Université de Montréal

I am a Research Master’s student with emphasis in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics advised by Liam Paull in Robotics and Embodied AI Lab (REAL) at Université de Montréal and MILA .

My research interests are focused on the application of Artificial Intelligence in robotic agents with the purpose to endow these with perception systems and enhance their decision-making capabilities. Particularly, I am broadly involved in the areas of:

  • Robotics Vision
  • Object Detection
  • Machine Learning (in general)
  • Bayesian Inference
  • Reinforcement Learning

Most of my work is motivated by the following question: “How can robotic agents be endowed with environmental awareness to start perceiving their surroundings accurately and reliably and thus, enhance their decision-making capabilities?”
