Anca Dragan is an assistant professor in the EECS Department at UC Berkeley. Her goal is to enable robots to work with, around, and in support of people. Anca runs the InterACT Lab, where she focuses on algorithms for human-robot interaction—algorithms that move beyond the robot’s function in isolation and generate robot behavior that also accounts for interaction and coordination with end users. The lab works across different applications, from assistive robots to manufacturing to autonomous cars, and draws from optimal control, planning, estimation, learning, and cognitive science. Anca also helped found and serves on the steering committee for the Berkeley AI Research (BAIR) Lab and is a co-PI of the Center for Human-Compatible AI.
