Undergraduate Researcher, Rover & Animus
Department:

Nicolas Tutuianu is an undergraduate dual-enrolled high school student in his third year pursuing a Bachelor’s in Computer Science at FAU.  In 2015, Nicolas joined the Machine Perception and Cognitive Robotics Laboratory to conduct research projects while implementing various machine learning techniques.  As part of a group of 5 undergraduate students, his team implemented a Q-Learning based rover framework that simulates the way a real-life brain would learn to solve a simple task.  More recently, Nicolas has been working with deep neural networks to build an open source machine learning training platform that allows toy cars to drive autonomously.  He is also Co-Team Leader of the Animus Team who are currently working with 3D cameras to recognize various types of exercise movements.
