Join us, September 3rd when we open the (virtual) doors and invite you inside to experience what is happening in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics research and innovation at Aarhus University.
Given the rapid pace of developments in associated areas such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision, cloud systems, cyber-physical systems as well as the availability of low-cost processors and various sensors, robotics has been and will continue to be a game-changer in academia and industry.
In today’s world, it is no longer sufficient to design robotic systems that are able to perform repetitive tasks. We must be ready to push the boundaries by leveraging the current state-of-the-art autonomy level towards smarter systems – systems that will learn and interact with their environment, collaborate with people and other systems, plan their future actions and execute a given task accurately.
In this online event, we will give a short update on how we address these topics at Aarhus University with a line-up of distinguished speakers, who are the leaders within their research fields. This event is organized in collaboration with DACAS-Rob (Danish Academic Society of Robotics).
