Robotics is expected to bring about the next technological revolution and therefore represents a big opportunity to generate an impact for the research in Artificial Intelligence. As a consequence, there is a renewed interest in addressing various aspects of robot design using AI techniques. These efforts create new scientific challenges, because the implementation of robotic systems is not simply a matter of engineering existing solutions; the AI components can no longer be addressed in isolation and tested on well-known benchmarks, but they need to be proven robust and effective within complex integrated systems. At the same time, Researchers in Robotics can contribute to the research in AI not only by better focussing on the fundamental problems that are of interest for robotic applications, but also to improve, integrate and compare to existing techniques.
In this workshop we aim at bringing together researchers in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics that can present contributions to the integration of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. We do not restrict to a specific set of topics, and we welcome not only the presentation of implemented solutions, but also of ideas, case studies and research challenges.
The workshop will include oral presentations, demos and posters. If you are interested in presenting a work or a system that contributes to the integration of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics either in form of an oral presentation, a poster, or a demo please send a 1-3 pages abstract specifying the kind of contribution you are proposing to Daniele Nardi.
