Over the past 10 years, Dr. Abdullah Alharthi's research has focused on pattern recognition to solve a wide range of new tasks including how to learn intelligent behavior in complex dynamic environments. He worked on topics of cognition, perception, theory of mind, gait and human-robot interaction. His work focuses on both human kinetics and the understanding and resolution of how humans and robots dynamically interact with each other. He worked on Deep Learning approaches to solve image, object, and signal recognition and classification problems.
