Cognition provides a robot with the ability to understand its environment – even from partial knowledge – now and in the future, and to use this understanding for action. Cognition breaks free of the present in a way that allows the robot to act reliably and safely, to adapt, and to improve. Developments in the fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Cognitive Systems have produced methods and technologies that can be used, and have been used, to cognitively enrich many facets of robotics, including perception, planning, navigation, manipulation, and human-robot interaction.
The AICoR Topic Group aims at linking the fields of AI, Cognitive Systems, and Robotics. This group believes that there is an enormous potential in linking these fields, both in terms of scientific progress and in terms of robotic applications, and it fosters means to strengthen this link.
