Gaoyue (Kathy) Zhou

I am a second-year MS in Robotics student at CMU Robotics Institute advised by Abhinav Gupta.

Previously, I did my undergraduate in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics at UC Berkeley. During my time at Berkeley, I had the pleasure to work with Prof. Sergey Levine and Prof. John DeNero in the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research (BAIR) Lab.

Research

I am broadly interested in Robotics, Reinforcement Learning, and NLP. My motivation is to build agents with cognitive capabilities that can learn and infer like humans.

In this paper, we collect and release a dataset for identifying deceptive actors through the game of Mafia, as well as train models to identify such actors and reveal features of their language.

We proposed a method for pre-training a behavioral prior for reinforcement learning using data from a diverse range of tasks, and used this behavioral prior to speed up learning of new tasks.
