(Peter) Xi Chen


Right now: I'm building teachable robots at Embodied Intelligence by leveraging recent advances in Deep Imitation Learning and Deep Reinforcement Learning.


I’m a PhD student at UC Berkeley in Professor Pieter Abbeel’s group. I was a research scientist at OpenAI working on reinforcement learning and generative models.

My current research interests are generative models and reinforcement learning, which try to endow machines with the abilities to understand and act in complicated environments respectively.

I co-organized the NIPS 2016 Deep RL Workshop.

I will give a tutorial on Deep RL at 2017 PKU Summer School on Data Science.
