IROS Workshop on Latest Advances in Big Activity Data Sources for Robotics & New Challenges
We are happy to announce that Prof. Gordon Cheng and our colleague Karinne Ramírez are co-organisers of the workshop on Latest Advances in Big Activity Data Sources for Robotics & New Challenges at the IROS Conference 2018 in Madrid/Spain.
Recently, we have witnessed that robots start to execute human-level complex tasks such as making popcorn, baking pizza and carrying out chemical experiments. Although these executions are milestones by themselves, robots still have limitations in terms of flexibility, speed and adaptability. To attack these limitations, we believe that big data sources, which contain activities from robots, human tracking, and virtual reality, play an important role. Having a big activity data source on site can help robots in many ways such as learning motion parameterizations, adapting to different conditions and generalizing their existing knowledge.
