Dexterous manipulation of objects is a core task in robotics and AI. Current robots are mostly limited to specific tasks within a known environment. In this project, we aim to develop AI empowered general purpose robotic systems for dexterous manipulation of objects within unstructured environments. This will be achieved through realistic simulation of both rigid and deformable objects’ manipulation, latent manipulation space learning and self-supervised learning for robotic manipulation through self-play.
