Seminar: Danica Kragic on development and open problems in robot perception and interaction

Don’t miss Danica Kragic’s seminar Perceiving, Acting and Collaborating coming up November 26 at 11am ET

Abstract:

I will discuss the development and open problems in robot perception and interaction. The integral ability of any robot is to act in the environment, interact and collaborate with people and other robots. Interaction between the agents builds on the ability to engage in mutual prediction and signaling. The focus will be on physical interaction with objects and modelling of multisensory data.
