Graduate Fellow: Deepak Pathak (2017)

Deepak Pathak, from Bareilly (Uttar Pradesh), India

Studying at UC Berkeley

Research: Deepak's research goal is to build intelligent systems that can learn with minimal human supervision by bootstrapping their own experience. This involves learning general (deep) visual representations of the environment using self-supervision and leveraging them to develop self-sustaining agents that could learn to act via their interactions with the real world. Research Link
