Ayush Jain

I am a Computer Science PhD student at Cognitive Learning for Vision and Robotics Lab (CLVR), at University of Southern California, advised by Prof. Joseph Lim. My research interests include Reinforcement Learning, Deep Learning and Robotics.

Before joining USC, I spent two great years in Seoul, working at Samsung Research Korea. Earlier, I graduated from IIT Delhi, where I worked under the guidance of Prof. Sumeet Agarwal and Prof. Rajakrishnan Rajkumar.

I am primarily interested in giving artificial agents the ability to think, understand and create. I am looking forward to work on state representations, exploration and intrinsic motivation, predictive models for planning and reinforcement learning, strategy for games, and control in robotics.

My prior work at Samsung was on information extraction, anomaly detection & predictive maintenance, and time series prediction.

My undergraduate research was on Computational Linguistics, where we investigated the reasons affecting word order choice in production of Hindi and English language.

This work investigates the extent to which word order choices in Hindi language are influenced by the drive to minimize the information variance in a sentence.
