Esteve Valls is currently working in TUWien as a PhD Researcher on Human intention recognition and prediction for Human Robot Collaborative behaviours. His main research interests are to understand human cognitive levels from robot perception, and use this gained knowledge to improve social awareness of robots. Esteve is expert in Deep Learning and mainly he is working to enhance robot's perception to allow them to work in populated environments.
