About AIR Group

We are a group of researchers, at SUNY Binghamton. AIR group's research interests include Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotics, and Human-Robot Interaction (HRI). Our goal is to develop intelligent mobile robots that are able to interact with people, provide services to people, and learn from this experience, in human-inhabited, collaborative environments.
