Start year: 2024

Summary: This project seeks to explore human-centred safe Reinforcement Learning (RL). Safe RL is a crucial field that enables the practical application of RL systems by fulfilling safety requirements. At present, safe RL assumes the presence of certain safety constraints in mathematical or logical forms. This project examines learning safety objectives from human-supplied data directly or language models indirectly, and implementing human-centred continuous corrections for safety enhancement. The resulting theories and algorithms will not only advance the frontiers of AI technology, but also contribute to the widespread application of safe RL, such as robotics and autonomous driving, bringing significant social and economic advantages.
