Skills Capture and Transfer
RO-MAN08 Workshop

Multimodal Skills Capture and Transfer is a challenging topic of 
research that is aimed to analyze and transfer the skilled component of 
human activities with the use of multimodal technologies. This field 
requires the contribution of researches from neuroscience, 
psychophysics, capturing technologies and rendering technologies. It 
ranges from the multimodal capture of a human task, the analysis of the 
task in terms of skills, to the rendering of the skill using human 
modalities, e.g. through haptic interfaces and advanced visualization 
techniques. At the same time the data acquired in real time is processed 
by machine learning algorithms for the identification of performance, 
comparing the user with an existing database of skilled user, producing 
as an outcome the required stimuli for improving the user task.

Present the current research in the area with particular focus on the 
use of Multimodal technologies for capturing and transfer. In addition this
event introduces the research carried on in the EU funded SKILLS IP  

All speakers are confirmed, titles are subject to change.
