Title: Perceiving, Acting and Collaborating
In this talk, Danica Kragic will discuss the development and open problems in robot perception and interaction. The integral ability of any robot is to act in the environment, interact and collaborate with people and other robots. Interaction between the agents builds on the ability to engage in mutual prediction and signaling. The focus will be on physical interaction with objects and modelling of multisensory data.
