Cooperation, Language, CogSci, AI, Robotics.
I take an interactionist approach to understand how language is acquired and used in the context of social and embodied environments. Previously I studied Theory-of-Mind modeling and proactive exploration's role in language learning. Now I am focusing on building realistic open-ended social and embodied environments. I have released 3 of these: Sotopia, WebArena, and Excalibur.
My ultimate dream is to unravel the mysteries of human intelligence. Inspired by Feynman's famous quote, "What I cannot create, I do not understand," I dive into research in ML, NLP, and Robotics, not only taking inspiration from but also contributing to a better understanding of humans themselves.
