Danica Kragic - "Vision for Action and Action for Vision"

Tuesday, 11 September, 2012 - 11:30 to 13:00

Recording of the speaker's talk at the Barcelona Brain and Technology Summer School, September 2012.

"A robot system needs to autonomously acquire new knowledge through interaction with the environment. The knowledge can be acquired only if suitable perception-action capabilities are present: a robotic system has to be able to detect, attend to and manipulate objects in the environment as well as interact with people and other robots. We present our longterm work in the area of vision based sensing and control with specific objectives on attention, segmentation, multisensory control and learning. We address the problem of object detection, grasp stability assessment and probabilistic models for action encoding."
