2021 Best Demonstration Award

TAILOR: Teaching with Active and Incremental Learning for Object Registration
Qianli Xu, Nicolas Gauthier, Wenyu Liang, Fen Fang, Hui Li Tan, Ying Sun, Yan Wu, Liyuan Li, and Joo-Hwee Lim.

The TAILOR system presents a method for registration of new objects with active and incremental learning based on human instruction, and is demonstrated on a robotic arm platform. The meticulously planned demonstration encompassed multiple aspects of AI including vision, learning, human-feedback, and robotics; and was presented virtually in a very engaging manner at the recently concluded AAAI-21 conference.
