|December 13th: The Return of the Light|
|The First Örebro Winter School on "Artificial Intelligence and Robotics"|
The "Lucia-2013" event will take place on December 13, 2013, at the "Conventum" convention center in Örebro, Sweden. This is the final event of the Winter School on AI and Robotics.
The "Lucia-2013" event is a follow-up of the Lucia-2012 foundational event on AI and Robotics held in Örebro, Sweden, on December 11-13, 2013. The Lucia-2012 event has marked an important beginning for a joint community of researchers working across the areas of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. Some of the (direct and indirect) outcomes of that event were:
Continuing the tradition of Lucia-2012, the main aim of this event is to gather a group of people who, while possibly coming from different communities, have long felt the need to combine the AI and Robotics traditions, and to discuss how this need can lead to a better defined and recognized research field. In order to focus the discussion, this year we will consider the following specific goal:
To understand what are the main research questions that need to be addressed, both in AI and in robotics, if AI techniques have to be used in real robots.
To make this goal concrete, we will aim at the production of three tangible outputs:
The event will mostly be a guided brainstorming. Guidance will be provided by the set of target outputs above. We will start with a round-robin of bottom-up contributions, in the form of initial problem statements proposed by each participant. We will then proceed with a joint discussion of these statements, and of how they can be used to better define our field, to inspire a suitable PhD curriculum, and to steer the funding policies. We will also discuss the overall status and plans of our "AI and Robotics" community.
