Workshop Overview

----------------------------------

Currently, robot learning and compliant control are mainly studied in the
two largely disconnected domains of machine learning and control theory,
respectively. This workshop aims at bridging the gap between these two
research fields in order to achieve compliant and versatile robots that can
truly function in human environments. Robots with such capabilities can be
extremely useful in various applications such as rehabilitation, assistive
robots, human-robot collaboration, teleoperation as well as industrial and
home service robotics.

In this half a day workshop, experts in the field of machine learning and
robot control will present their latest achievements and discuss possible
directions to integrate the various techniques required to create versatile
robots

 

Scope and Topics

----------------------------------

Due to its interdisciplinary nature, this workshop is supported by two IEEE
RAS Technical Committees: Human-Robot Interaction & Coordination and Robot
Learning. The workshop's topics cover, but are not limited to:

* Task transfer:

     - Programming by demonstrations

     - Imitation learning

     - Reinforcement learning

     - Movement primitives

* Physical Interaction Control:

     - Force control

     - (Variable) impedance control

     - Hybrid control

     - Parallel control

     - Physical human-robot collaboration

* Learning for compliant manipulation:

     - Learning variable impedance control

     - Learning force control

     - Learning to perform assembly

     - Learning to perform tooling tasks
