* What will you miss the most from your time at LASA?"
Felix: Two things:
First, getting to work with so many different systems: arms, hands, sensors, software architectures, etc... It's great to be presented with a new system: first you use and understand it, then you master and improve it.
Second, and more importantly, getting to work with so many people, each with their own unique expertise. Finding common ground and going into new directions is a great pleasure.
* What advice can you give to new PhD students?
Felix: Implementation on robots is just like investing: get the fundamentals right and you're sure to be successful in the long term.

"Do you remember the saddest moment of your intership?"
Yue: saw the robot not running as you wanted it.
“Is there anything you would like to do that you haven’t done yet?”
Yue: Yes, I would like to put the learning from demonstration part into my work, which was possible because of lack of time.
Yue: “If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?”
I think if I could have defined the project more clearly, earlier, I could have a better result.
