Deep Learning and Neural Systems in Robotics
Topical issue in PALADYN. Journal of Behavioural Robotics

Deep Learning can equip robots with a new level of skill by utilizing insights from neuroscience.
These new developments have impact on various types of robots, from companion robots to driver assistance in semi-autonomous vehicles. Deep Learning can enable unprecedented quality of results in tasks such as object detection, localization, communication and behavior learning.
Training deep neural networks typically requires GPU workstations or high-performance computing servers. It may require huge amounts of data or innovative training schemes. These issues indicate only some of the special challenges when utilizing deep networks in robotics.
Within this context the topics of this special issue include, but are not limited to:
- Applications of deep learning
- Software and hardware systems 
- Data acquisition for deep learning
- Neural information processing systems
- Deep learning training schemes and paradigms 
- GPU computing for deep learning
- Software engineering for deep learning
- Neural networks on low powered devices
- Human robot interaction and communication
- Cognitive, developmental and evolutionary robotics

The deadlines for the submission are as follows:
15 June 2018 (publication in 2018)
15 December 2018 (publication in 2019)

Notification of acceptance will be communicated as we progress with the review process.
Individual papers will be reviewed and published online on an ongoing basis.
