Pieter Abbeel is a roboticist at the University of California, Berkeley known for his work on reinforcement learning. At Stanford, he studied robotics under advisors Daphne Koller and Andrew Ng. After finishing his PhD in 2008, Pieter became an assistant professor in Berkeley's EECS department, and he's now the co-director of the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research lab (BAIR). In 2014 he co-founded Gradescope, which was acquired by TurnItIn in 2018. In 2016 Pieter joined OpenAI, where he has published several articles on his work in generative models, robotics systems, and policy gradients. In 2017 he cofounded Embodied Intelligence, which has since rebranded to covariant.ai.
