    •  NEWS   MERL Researchers Demonstrate New Model-Based AI Learning Technology for Equipment Control
      Date: February 14, 2018
      Where: Tokyo, Japan
      MERL Contacts: Devesh Jha; Daniel Nikovski; Diego Romeres; William Yerazunis; Jeroen van Baar; Alan Sullivan
      Research Areas: Optimization, Computer Vision, Data Analytics, Robotics
      Brief
      • New technology for model-based AI learning for equipment control was demonstrated by MERL researchers at a recent press release event in Tokyo. The AI learning method constructs predictive models of the equipment through repeated trial and error, and then learns control rules based on these models. The new technology is expected to significantly reduce the cost and time needed to develop control programs in the future. Please see the link below for the full text of the Mitsubishi Electric press release.

    •  EVENT   MERL 2nd Annual Open House
      Date & Time: Thursday, November 30, 2017; 4-6pm
      MERL Contacts: Marissa Deegan; Elizabeth Phillips; Jeroen van Baar; Anthony Vetro
      Location: 201 Broadway, 8th floor, Cambridge, MA
      Brief
      • Snacks, demos, science: On Thursday 11/30, Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs (MERL) will host an open house for graduate+ students interested in internships, post-docs, and research scientist positions. The event will be held from 4-6pm and will feature demos & short presentations in our main areas of research: algorithms, multimedia, electronics, communications, computer vision, speech processing, optimization, machine learning, data analytics, mechatronics, dynamics, control, and robotics. MERL is a high impact publication-oriented research lab with very extensive internship and university collaboration programs. Most internships lead to publication; many of our interns and staff have gone on to notable careers at MERL and in academia. Come mix with our researchers, see our state of the art technologies, and learn about our research opportunities. Dress code: casual, with resumes.

        Pre-registration for the event is strongly encouraged:
