Welcome to the Lifelong Machine Learning Research Group! We are part of the GRASP lab at the University of Pennsylvania. PI: Eric Eaton, PhD.

Our research focuses on the development of methods for AI systems that learn over long-term deployments. Most AI methods assume a fixed set of tasks and a static instance distribution that is known at training time and evaluation time. Our work breaks these assumptions, allowing for our methods to adapt to new tasks while deployed in novel domains, unlocking new directions of work in robotics and medicine.

We are frequently looking for passionate new PhD students, Postdocs, and Master students to join the team! See our open positions for more details.
