Dear RSS community -

Please join us on Sunday, July 16 at our workshop

(Empirically) Data Driven Manipulation 
Robotics, Science and Systems Workshop
Boston, MA. July 16, 2017

Our discussion will focus on those challenges involved in making the data-driven approach work for robotic manipulation. This workshop will bring together experts at the forefront of the field that consider how manipulation systems can exploit data sets that are complicated, multi-modal, unlabeled, and expensive.
