Das Team des Planeten Science rund um Moderatorin Angelika Peer, konnte einen hochkarätigen Speaker zum Thema "HUMANOID ROBOTS THAT ACT, LEARN, COLLABORATE AND AUGMENT HUMANS" gewinnen: Tamin Asfour ist Professor of Humanoid Robotics am KIT (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) und forscht seit Jahren zu den Themen Künstliche Intelligenz und Robotics. 

Wer an diesem spannenden Talk teilnehmen mag, ist herzlich eingeladen: Freitag, 28. Dezember 2018, 17:30 Uhr, Mediensaal der Athesia Druck GmbH im Weinbergweg 7, Bozen. Die Teilnahme ist kostenlos. 

Hier ein paar Informationen zum Thema und zum Referenten:


Humanoid robotics has made significant progress and will continue to play central role in robotics research, many applications and in understanding intelligence. Engineering humanoid robots, which are able to learn from humans and sensorimotor experience, to predict the consequences of actions and exploit the interaction with the world to extend their cognitive horizon remains a research grand challenge. The talk will introduce our recent progress towards building integrated 24/7 humanoid robots able to perform complex grasping and manipulation tasks in daily kitchen environments and industrial maintenance tasks. In particular, I will show how learning from human observation and natural language methods can be combined to build a motion alphabet and robot internet of skills as the basis for intuitive and flexible robot programming. I will discuss the vision of robot suits for every human body and the transformative impact of humanoid robotic on other research areas and application fields. As a result, humanoid robots will become 24/7 wearable companions for augmentation or replacing human performance in daily and working environments, and humanoid technologies will contribute to personalized rehabilitation in medicine, human support and protection in human-made and natural disasters.

Zu diesem Thema referiert TAMIM ASFOUR:

Tamim Asfour is full Professor of Humanoid Robotics at the Institute for Anthropomatics and Robotics, High Performance Humanoid Technologies at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). His research focuses on the engineering of high performance 24/7 humanoid robotics as well as on the mechano-informatics of humanoids as the synergetic integration of mechatronics, informatics and artificial intelligence methods into humanoid robot systems, which are able to predict, act and interact in the real world. In his research, he is reaching out and connecting to neighboring areas in large-scale national and European interdisciplinary projects in the area of robotics in combination with machine learning and computer vision. Tamim is the developer of the ARMAR humanoid robot family. Tamim is scientific spokesperson of the KIT Center “Information · Systems · Technologies (KCIST)”, president of the Executive Board of the German Robotics Society (DGR) and the Founding Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE-RAS Humanoids Conference Editorial Board.
