Cognitive Development, Learning and Representation Co-construction in Human-Robots Systems and Ambient Intelligence Systems

July 25th, half day, Mars

[website]

Organizers: Amélie Cordier, Stéphane Doncieux, Amal El Fallah Seghrouchni, Frank Guérin, Salima Hassas, Bipin Indurkhya, Leonardo Lana De Carvalho, Mathieu Lefort, Georgi Stojanov

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers interested in developmental learning and bio-inspired approaches for artificial cognitive systems and practitioners from digital industries, robotics and Ambient Intelligence systems, to exchange their knowledge and experiences regarding the question of building representations in human-robots and Ambient Intelligence Systems. The workshop’s aim is also to cross fertilize the exchanges between participants from different disciplines and sectors, around the progress of the state of the art in foundational theories and their potential transfer and deployment in applications in real world settings, with robots and Ambient Intelligence Systems. The workshop program will be steered towards bridging the gap between theory and practice. This event will be backed by the ANR Labcom funded project Behaviors.ai (a joint laboratory between the LIRIS-CNRS laboratory and the Hoomano company). The aim of Behaviors.ai is to investigate new approaches of artificial intelligence, and more precisely developmental learning, to create new ways to interact with social robots to make them more empathetic and able to continuously learn as they interact in “real life” environments.

The half day workshop will be organized into 2 main sessions :
• An academic session with 2 invited talks from pioneering researchers in social robotics, and
• A session related to academia and industry collaborations presenting projects and companies activities in the area of social robotics
The workshop will be closed by a panel session mixing academic and industrial panelists about the challenges and future of social robotics, will close the wor
