Georg Martius is leading a research group on Autonomous Learning at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen, Germany. Before joining the MPI in Tübingen, he was a postdoc fellow at the IST Austria in the groups of Christoph Lampert and Gašper Tkačik after being a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig. He pursues research in autonomous learning, that is how an embodied agent can determine what to learn, how to learn, and how to judge the learning success. His research focus is on machine learning for robotics, including internal model learning, reinforcement learning, representation learning, differentiable reasoning and haptics.
