Ayush Jain

I am a Computer Science PhD student in 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 act in novel circumstances. My research currently involves using reinforcement learning, imitation learning and representation learning for applications like planning and control in robotics.

UID Generalization to New Actions in Reinforcement Learning
Ayush Jain*, Andrew Szot*, Joseph J. Lim
International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML), 2020

Our proposed RL framework enables agents to solve sequential decision-making tasks even when the available actions (tools or skills) have not been seen before.

UID Uniform Information Density Effects on Syntactic Choice in Hindi
Ayush Jain*, Vishal Singh*, Sidharth Ranjan*, Rajakrishnan Rajkumar, Sumeet Agarwal
Workshop on Linguistic Complexity and Natural Language Processing, COLING 2018

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.
