Event description
Introduction to Practical Robotics (leading to RoboCup competition).

About this Event

AI related training for students in Science & Engineering.

Due to a huge increase in AI technology being used across a wide range of interdisciplinary sectors, this training aims to arm PhD students with the skills required by industry, e.g. programming, algorithm design and communication etc.

The Government's Industrial strategy for the UK has identified a gap graduate skills for those in the industrial scientific community, especially the skills related to Artificial Intelligence.

We have defined projects based on the RoboCup@Work competition to train the PhD students. The RoboCup@Work is a yearly competition in RoboCup that targets the use of robots in work-related scenarios. It aims to foster research and development that enables use of innovative mobile robots equipped with advanced manipulators for current and future industrial applications, where robots cooperate with human workers for complex tasks ranging from manufacturing, automation, and parts handling up to general logistics.

The training will consist of the following stages:

• One-week extensive training on Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Robotics and the related topics to the RoboCup Competition, given by previous participants of RoboCup competition and PhD students at the smARTLab who have been working on robotics and related topics;

• Three-weeks hands-on experience to work on the Kuka YouBot platforms to program for various tasks, e.g. object recognition and detection, path planning, Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) and robot grasping;

• Teams will be formed and funded to travel to and participate in the German Open (European championship of RoboCup@Work) in May 2019.

We will also soon be announcing some guest lectures on robotics and automation from industry partners. More information on the guest lectures will be posted shortly.
