Tomás Lozano-Perez is an MIT professor interested in integrating task, motion and decision-theoretic planning for robotic manipulation.
Tomás Lozano-Perez is the School of Engineering Professor in Teaching Excellence at MIT, and a principal investigator at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. His research has been in robotics (configuration-space approach to motion planning), computer vision (interpretation-tree approach to object recognition), machine learning (multiple-instance learning), medical imaging (computer-assisted surgery) and computational chemistry (drug activity prediction and protein structure determination from NMR and X-ray data). His current research is aimed at integrating task, motion and decision-theoretic planning for robotic manipulation. Lozano-Perez has received an IEEE Robotics Pioneer Award and a Presidential Young Investigator Award.
