个人简介
Jan Peters is a full professor (W3) for Intelligent Autonomous Systems at the Computer Science Department of Darmstadt University of Technology (Technische Universitaet Darmstadt) and at the same time an adjunct senior research scientist at the Max-Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, where he heads the interdepartmental Robot Learning Group between the departments of Bernhard Schoelkopf and Stefan Schaal.


Previously, Jan Peters has been a full-time Senior Research Scientist and Robot Learning Group Leader in the department of Bernhard Schoelkopf the Max-Planck Institute of Biological Cybernetics since 2007. Even earlier, he completed a Ph.D. at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles. There, Jan has been working with Stefan Schaal, Sethu Vijayakumar (now at U. Edinburgh, UK), and Firdaus Udwadia (Department of Mechanical Engineering). Chris Atkeson (Robotics Institute at CMU) and Gaurav Sukhatme also guided him to his thesis. Jan remains affiliated with the CLMC Lab as an adjunct researcher.


Before joining USC's Computer Science Ph.D. program and the CLMC Lab in Fall 2001, Jan Peters graduated from the University of Hagen in 2000 with a Diplom-Informatiker (German M.Sc. in Computer Science, focus on artificial intelligence) and from Munich University of Technology in 2001 with a Diplom-Ingenieur in Electrical Engineering (German M.Eng. in Electrical Engineering, majoring in automation & control). In 2000-2001, he spent two semesters as visiting student at National University of Singapore. In 2002, he completed a M.Sc. in Computer Science (focus on Machine Learning) and, in 2005, a M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering (Major: Nonlinear Dynamics & Control) both from USC. Jan Peters has been a visiting research student at the Department of Robotics at the German Aerospace Research Center in Germany, at Siemens Advanced Engineering in Singapore and at the Department of Humanoid Robotics and Computational Neuroscience at the Advanded Telecommunication Research (ATR) Center in Japan. rom 2001 to 2007, he was a graduate research assistant at the Computational Learning and Motor Control Lab at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles, USA, where Jan has been working with Stefan Schaal, Sethu Vijayakumar (now at U. Edinburgh, UK), and Firdaus Udwadia (Department of Mechanical Engineering). Jan Peters received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Southern California (USC). Chris Atkeson (Robotics Institute at CMU) and Gaurav Sukhatme also guided him to his thesis. In 2011, Jan Peters' PhD Thesis received the Dick Volz Best 2007 US PhD Thesis Runner Up Award based on thesis quality and thesis impact. Jan remains affiliated with the CLMC Lab as an invited researcher. After graduating from USC, Jan Peters became a full-time Senior Research Scientist and Robot Learning Group Leader in the Empirical Inference Department of Bernhard Schoelkopf at the Max-Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in 2007-2011 and at the Max-Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems since 2011. In 2011, Jan Peters joined the Technische Universitaet Damstadt as a full professor (W3) founding the Intelligent Autonomous Systems lab.
