Beckman-Brown Lecture on Interdisciplinary Science

Professor Fei-Fei Li, Stanford University
2 p.m. CST Thursday, Oct. 6


Her virtual talk is titled, "From Seeing to Doing: Understanding and Interacting with the Real World." Visual intelligence is a cornerstone of intelligence. From passive perception to embodied interaction with the world, vision plays a critical role. In this talk, she will discuss work in the Li Group lab that spans both perception and robotic learning, underscoring the importance of an ‘ecological approach’ to learning. Register in advance on Zoom.

The annual Beckman-Brown Lecture on Interdisciplinary Science honors Dr. Arnold O. Beckman, the founder of the Institute, and Dr. Theodore “Ted” Brown, the founding director. The series is funded by a gift from the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation. Learn more.
