Recently, many intelligent robots have been developed for the future society. Particularly, intelligent robots should continue to perform tasks in real environments such as houses, commercial facilities and public facilities. The growing needs to automate daily tasks combined with new robot technologies are driving the development of human-friendly robots. Intelligent robots should have human-like intelligence and cognitive capabilities to co-exist with people.
Artificial intelligence is very important to provide human-friendly services by robots. Research on artificial intelligence, cognition computing, and soft computing has a long history. The concepts on adaptation, learning, and cognitive development should be introduced more intensively in the next generation robotics. Furthermore, the advent of Internet of Things, 5G wireless technology, and robotics technology may also bring brand-new emerging intelligence to robots.
This special session focuses on the intelligence of robots emerging from the adaptation, learning, and cognitive development through the interaction with people and dynamic environments from the conceptual, theoretical, methodological, and technical points of view.
The topics of interests in this special session include:
Learning, Adaptation, and Evolution in Robotics
Embodied Cognitive Science
Perception and Action
Fuzzy, Neural, and Evolutionary Computation for Robotics
Soft Computing for Vision and Learning
