We spent some time thinking about how to build some recent advances in neural natural language understanding into a system that could be useful for a general-purpose service robot. The approach strikes a nice balance between flexibility, performance, and ease of implementation. I’ll present the paper at this year’s RoboCup Symposium in Australia.

Yuqian and I also put down some of thoughts on what the desirable features of a GPSR planning system are, a nice complement to our other work to appear at ICAPS.
