Vision for Language and Manipulation: A BMVA Meeting

London, United Kingdom
Vision for Language and Manipulation
One Day BMVA symposium in London, UK on Friday 11th July , 2014
Chairs: Nick Hockings and Dr Walterio Mayol-Cuevas
Human dexterous manipulation remains unmatched in robotics. The fusion of visual, tactile and proprioceptive perception plays a central role in planning and control of manipulation. Many of the same percepts that are useful for manipulation have also been shown to be useful in the robotic grounding of natural language [1,2,3,4].
The aim of this meeting is to bring together researchers and practitioners, from both industry and academia, interested in any aspects of vision for manipulation or natural language grounding.
We are seeking papers that address the challenges of vision for manipulation and language including, but not limited to :
- Percepts of objects, affordances, forces, actions, anticipated effects
- Visual-tactile-proprioceptive fusion
- Active vision for planning and control of palpation, grasping, and manipulation
- SLAM for deformable, breakable objects, fluids and occlusions in a dynamic world
- Hand eye coordination, self tracking, visual control of manipulation
- Recognition of other agents
- Vision for imitation, interaction, cooperation and communication with other agents
- Percepts leading to the emergence of syntax in language and motion planning
- Learning methods for visual grasping and control methods for visual grasping.
Call for Participation:
All those interested in presenting material at this meeting are invited to submit a paragraph describing their topic to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration by 3rd April 2014.
