Learning continually from a never-ending stream of data is a key property for every Pervasive AI system. Being able to sustainably and effectively adapt to the ever-changing environments and circumstances of the real-world is often defined as a key property of Intelligence.

At the PAI Lab we design and implement deep continual learning algorithms for enabling the next generation AI systems and study their applications to real-world problems. In particular, we are interested in:

  • Unsupervised / Self-Supervised/ Weekly/ Semi-Supervised Continual Learning
  • Continual Sequence Learning
  • Continual Learning and Fundation Models
  • Neuroscience-Inspired Continual Learning
  • Continual Reinforcement Learning
  • Continual Learning R&D Frameworks & Tools
  • Continual Robot Learning
  • Continual learning at the Edge
  • Distributed Continual Learning
  • Real-World Continual Learning Applications
  • Continual Learning as a Service (CLaaS)
  • …and much more!
