Zach Dodds.

Zachary Dodds, PhD, Leonhard-Johnson-Rae Professor of Computer Science, researches robotic hand/eye coordination and computer vision-based robotics. He is interested in finding the best way to tell a robot what to do and ensure it gets done, using cameras as sensors. When a robot and a human are looking at the same thing, it isn’t obvious […]
