A robot's physical form and its motion are innately coupled - in order to change its physical design, one must often change the way it moves, and vice versa. Can computers automatically and simultaneously design robot structure and motion?
We aim to create a virtual environment where agents learn to perform human tasks by executing programs. Furthermore, we aim to develop models that can generate such programs from video or text, enabling agents to understand and imitate such activities.
