Two day workshop with keynotes, demonstrations and a poster session.
Dates: Thursday November 28th and Friday November 29th
Location: NAVER LABS Europe, 6 Chemin de Maupertuis, 38240 Meylan (Grenoble, France). By invitation only.
Remarkable results in computer vision, reinforcement learning, scene understanding and related fields have led to being able to equip robots with AI components so they can operate in the real world. This is a significant shift from the highly-controlled environments they had previously been restricted to, as well as the very clearly defined tasks they were able to undertake in these environments. In the not-too-distant future, we expect that further advances in AI will integrate robots and our interaction with them, into our everyday lives.
In this workshop, we address the question of how AI can help to solve the biggest challenges of real-world robotics applications such as understanding and navigating complex dynamic environments, interacting with humans and learning to accomplish tasks autonomously. The event brings together researchers and experts from different AI and Robotics disciplines to discuss current and future directions of these fields in an informal setting to facilitate the creation of connections and collaborations.
In order to make the workshop more interactive and to give more people the opportunity to actively contribute to the workshop, we will organize a poster session for, e.g., PhD students (or anybody else) to present and discuss their work. For this, we will provide small travel grants of 300 Euro on a first come first serve basis.
