While many current EU projects are dealing with the use of AI and Cognition technologies in robotic systems, these efforts are not always sufficiently connected. One of the goals of the AICoR topic group in euRobotics is to increase awareness, communication and cross-fertilization among EU projects which are related to AI and Cognition in robotics.
This workshop will pursue this goal, but it will also go one step further in using current experience to set future strategic directions for EU projects on AI and Cognition in Robotics. These directions should be pushed in the euRobotics MAR and in future EU calls. The seeding material for the discussion will be a set of brief (5 minute) presentations of running or recently completed relevant EU projects. Each presentation will have to answer a set of key questions, published on the workshop web site two weeks before the event.
This workshop is organized by the SPARC topic group AICoR (AI and Cognition in Robotics) in collaboration with EUCoG (the European Association for Cognitive Systems).
