Seth Teller obtained a Ph.D. from U.C. Berkeley in 1992, focusing on
accelerated rendering of complex architectural environments. After
post-doctoral fellowships at the Computer Science Institute of the
Hebrew University of Jerusalem Institute of Computer Science, and
Princeton University's Computer Science Department, Teller joined
MIT's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science,
Lab for Computer Science, and Artificial Intelligence Lab in 1994.
(In 2004, the two labs merged into CSAIL, MIT's Computer Science
and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.)
At CSAIL, Teller heads the Robotics, Vision, and Sensor Networks group (RVSN),
where his research focuses on enabling machines to become aware of
their surroundings and interact naturally with people. Some of his
lab's recent projects include: hand-held and body-worn devices that
provide navigation assistance indoors; a voice-commandable robotic
wheelchair; a self-driving LandRover; and an unmanned, outdoor
forklift commanded through speech and gestures.
