Vision 4 Interaction: from humans to robots
One Day BMVA workshop in London, UK on Wednesday 19th October 2016
Chairs: Nicoletta Noceti & Alessandra Sciutti
Keynote Speakers: Prof. Antonia Hamilton (UCL) and Prof. Yiannis Aloimonos (Univ. of Maryland).
In this highly interdisciplinary one-day workshop we aim at bringing together contributions from the fields of cognitive science, robotics, machine vision and artificial intelligence, to corroborate the discussion on the potential guidelines to design and develop biologically-inspired computational vision models that may favour a natural interaction between artificial systems and humans.
