CBCL UPCOMING EVENT:
IIT@MIT Lab Workshop: Robotics and Learning Theory at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia
|Feb 2nd, 2012, 11 am - 2:00 pm, MIT 46-5165|
We will hear about recent developments in humanoid robotics, we will discuss sensorimotor coordination and neuroscience in the context of the iCub robot and review learning theory results, such as stability of regularization for supervised and unsupervised learning, including learning data representation and structure from data. We will also discuss ongoing IIT research on intelligence and the core research activities at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT).
There will be sandwiches and a robot! We will have lunch items during a demonstration of the iCub humanoid robotic platform (http://icub.org/).
The Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) was established jointly by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research and the Ministry of Economy and Finance to promote excellence in basic and applied research and to contribute to the economic development of Italy. The primary goals of the IIT are the creation and dissemination of scientific knowledge as well as the strengthening of Italy's technological competitiveness. To achieve these two goals, the IIT cooperate with both academic institutions and private organizations, fostering through these partnerships scientific development, technological advances and training in high technology.
