IROS 2013 Workshop on AI-based Robotics

The workshop on "AI-based Robotics" at IROS 2013, co-organized by Moritz Tenorth and Michael Beetz, will discuss recent advances in applying AI technology to robotics. In the past years, there has been a strong trend towards using semantic information in robotics, for instance in form of semantic maps, and we believe that having access to AI methods will be crucial for robots to become intelligent co-workers and skilled household assistants.

This topic is also at the core of the RoboHow project, in which mobile manipulation robots are equipped with AI techniques like knowledge representation, plan-based control, learning and reasoning to enable them to learn novel tasks more easily.
