Dr. Finn and her students

Welcome to the Stanford IRIS (Intelligence through Robotic Interaction at Scale) lab website! We are interested in the capability of robots and other agents to develop broadly intelligent behavior through learning and interaction. We work on robotics and machine learning, and we are affiliated with SAIL, the ML Group, the Stanford Robotics Center, and CRFM.
