AICoR - Artificial Intelligence and Cognition in Robotics

This is the first formal meeting of AICoR (Artificial Intelligence and Cognition in Robotics), a Topic Group within the euRobotics AISBL. The goal of this workshop is two-fold. First, to streamline the contents, organization and plans of the AICoR Topic Group. Second, to organize the AICoR contribution to euRobotics "Multi-Annual Roadmap" MAR. This worshop is organized in collaboration with EUCog - the European Network for the Advancement of Artificial Cognitive Systems, Interaction and Robotics.

Event dates: 12th of March 2014

Symposium "Machine Ethics in the Context of Medical and Care Agents"

This event seeks to bring together some of the leading researchers in the world to discuss theoretical and practical aspects of the use of artificial cognitive and robotic agents in the context of medical care and health care. More specifically, the purpose of this meeting aims (1) to consolidate and strengthen collaboration between European researches in this area; (2) to invite experts from elsewhere in the world to enrich our discussions and (3) to initiate new links, both between ethics researchers (among themselves) and between ethics researchers and technical-scientific people who develop cognitive systems, and those involved in the front-line application of these systems in medical and social care settings.

Event dates: 3 – 4 March 2014

NeuroEngineering the Brain: from Neuroscience to Robotics … and back

Engineering and neuroscience have a long history of successful collaborations. Various examples convincingly show that neuro‐inspired approaches not just yield higher performance but also more natural behavior of technical systems compared to conventional engineering approaches. Vice‐versa the field of neuroscience can benefit from bio‐inspired technical systems by inferring insights from such systems’ behaviors (e.g. human‐robot interaction). However, up to date most such projects have not yet left the domain of proof‐of‐concept. Despite the tremendous progress in neuroscientific understanding of higher brain functionality made in the last decade, none of our models have yet made it into everyday technical systems.

Event dates: 2 – 4 December 2013

Synthetic Modeling of Life and Cognition: Open Questions

In recent decades researchers in various scientific domains have been working intensely on procedures directed to exploring life and cognition in a “synthetic” way, i.e. through modeling in artificial systems. This synthetic methodology poses a challenge for both science itself and the philosophy of science: to define the possibilities, the limits, and the ways of the synthetic modeling of life and cognition, and its relevance for biological, behavioral, cognitive, and social sciences.

Philosophy and Theory of Artificial Intelligence

A broad framework is set by questions like: What are the necessary conditions for artificial intelligence (if any); what are sufficient ones? What do these questions relate to the conditions for intelligence in humans and other natural agents? What are the ethical and societal problems that artificial intelligence raises, or will raise?

International Conference "Aesthetics and the Embodied Mind"

The Conference provides a unique opportunity for researchers to take part in a lively exhange of ideas within an international and interdisciplinary community of experts in aesthetics and the embodied mind thesis. (see the programme below). Its aim is to bring together and integrate the multiple and complementary ways of investigating, analyzing and discussing the refutation of the Cartesian mind-body dichotomy and its consequences for aesthetics beyond art theory.

CogSci 2013, 35th annual meeting of the Cognitive Science Society

CogSci 2013's theme is "Cooperative Minds: Social Interaction and Group Dynamics." This theme reflects a rapidly growing interest in the Cognitive Science community, namely a move from the study of individual cognition to the social realm. A further topic will be Cognitive Interaction Technologies, a rather new field aiming at a thorough understanding of the processes and functional constituents of cognitive interaction in order to replicate them in technical systems.

Event dates: July 31 - August 3, 2013

Postgraduate Conference on Robotics and Development of Cognition RobotDoC-PhD

The aim of the Postgraduate Conference on Robotics and Development of Cognition (RobotDoC-PhD) is to bring together young scientists working on developmental cognitive robotics and its core disciplines, in order to provide both feedback and greater visibility to their research. The conference is open to all PhD students and post-doctoral researchers in the field. RobotDoC-PhD conference is an initiative as a part of Marie Curie Actions ITN RobotDoC and will be organised as a satellite event of the 22nd International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks ICANN 2012.

Event dates: 10 - 12 September, 2012

4th Joint Action Meeting (JAM)

Human life is full of joint actions ranging from a handshake to the performance of a symphony. We are highly skilled at coordinating our actions with those of others to reach common goals, and rely on this ability throughout our daily lives. What are the processes underlying this ability? How does joint action develop? What are the basic principles needed to build robotic systems that can interact with humans? What might differentiate joint action from individual action, both conceptually and in terms of experience?

EpiRob'09 - Ninth International Conference on Epigenetic Robotics: Modeling Cognitive Development in Robotic Systems

The school will affords a change of perspective in verbal and nonverbal communication, where the
research focus moves from "communicative tools" to "communicative instances" and ask for investigations that take into account the environment and the context in which the communicative acts take place.

The consequences in Information Communication Technology (ICT) research should bring to the development of instantiated interactive dialogue systems and instantiated intelligent avatars able to act by exploiting contextual and environmental signals and process them by combining previous experience (memory) adapted to the problem instance.

Event dates: 12th - 14th Nov 2009.
