Peiyun Hu

I am a PhD student (2016-) at the Robotics Institute of Carnegie Mellon University, where I am fortunate to be advised by with Deva Ramanan. Prior to joining CMU, I spent two years at UC Irvine and four years at Tsinghua University.


I spend most of my time thinking about (1) how can we teach robots to recognize all sorts of objects that these robots might encounter when they go out and operate in an open world? and (2) what is the most efficient way to teach?
