IROS Workshop on Cognitive Robotics Systems: Replicating Human Actions and Activities

Lazaros Nalpantidis, Assistant Professor at RVMI, along with academics from Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, the UK and the US, organized the 2nd International Workshop on Cognitive Robotics Systems (CRS), with a focus on robots replicating human actions and activities.

The workshop was organized alongside the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS), which was held in the Tokyo Big Sight in Japan. The workshop was a huge success with invited talks from world-class researchers in the field such as Prof. John Tsotsos (York University, Canada) (see image on the right) and Prof. Oliver Brock (TU of Berlin, Germany). Seven novel papers and four extended abstracts were presented during the full-day workshop. The panel discussion at the end of the day raised interesting questions on the definition of cognition in the robotics domain and the extent to which current state-of-the-art is addressing the question of human-like cognition in robotics.
