CALL FOR PAPERS

Second Workshop on Cognitive Robotics Systems
Replicating Human Actions and Activities
Sunday, Nov. 3, 2013
IROS 2013 Tokyo, Japan

http://crs2013.org  crs2013 at easychair.org

Future robotic systems are expected to exhibit a level of cognition
whereby they can replicate human activities, taking into consideration
their own capabilities and limitations. In essence, robots are
expected to be capable of understanding, generalizing, empathizing and
replicating human behavior to achieve autonomous learning in the
fullest sense of the word: understanding through sensing and encoding,
generalizing by extracting higher-level understanding from low-level
sensing data, empathizing by developing a sense of context-dependent
interpretation, and replicating to reproduce the observed behavior
even in novel contexts.

This workshop aims at stimulating discussion towards addressing
domestic and industrial requirements for cognitive robotics systems,
with an emphasis on reproducing human actions and activities.

We warmly welcome contributions in three formats: papers, extended
abstracts and discussion questions. Discussion questions are short
questions that will be directed to the panel of invited speakers
during the workshop, to trigger discussions.

Robot imitation and learning by demonstration
