Announcing:


Special Issue on Artificial Intelligence in Robotics: Sensing, Representation and Action



Rationale:


As we expect robots to take part to our everyday life, the concept of AI as a separable and specific part of a robot architecture shows its intrinsic limitations. The stress on sensing, representation and action is motivated by the need of distributing AI principles and methods at various levels of robot architectures, with respect to both hardware and software aspects. A purposively designed robot shape and morphology can be helpful in solving tasks without an explicitly devoted underlying computational process, whereas a carefully designed software architecture can play a dramatic role in such complex systems as robots are.


The need arises to design novel paradigms to face complex challenges in Human-Robot interaction tasks, specifically since intelligence is expected to play major roles in sensing, representation and action processes. For this reason, the SI will focus on distributed AI techniques aimed at producing a consistent advancement with respect to the current state of art on sensing techniques, multi-modal information fusion, knowledge representation (with a specific emphasis on formal methodologies to encode information), reasoning and control, as well as on engineering aspects related to real-time data processing and programming tools.



Topics:


Contributions are solicited in those branches of research in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics that explicitly take the interaction between robots and the real-world into account, such as Human-Robot interaction, interaction and behaviour modelling, sensor data fusion, logic and neural based knowledge representation mechanisms, reasoning and control. Possible topics include:



  • AI based software architectures for robots.
  • AI mediated Human-Robot Interaction.
  • AI methods in sensing and perception.
  • AI sensory-motor loops.
  • AI techniques applied to robot control.
  • Behaviour and reasoning models.
  • Bio-inspired and neural approaches to sensing, representation and action.
  • Bootstrapping AI techniques.
  • Distributed knowledge representation.
  • Formalisms for the fast prototyping of robot-based AI solutions.
  • Machine Learning and Robotics.
  • Multi-modal perception and information fusion.
  • Ontology models and data semantics.
  • Real-time reasoning and planning.
  • Real-world case studies.
  • Robot morphology and situated AI.
