Centre researchers ran a successful “New Frontiers for Deep Learning in Robotics” workshop at the Robotics: Science and Systems Conference in Boston. Luminary speakers including convolutional net founder Yann LeCun of Facebook AI spoke about challenges and opportunities in deep learning in robotics.
With approximately 200 people in attendance, the workshop was one of the most well attended at the entire conference. Invited keynotes were accompanied by a series of spotlight presentations and a poster session, with a best paper awards ceremony, sponsored by the Centre, Osaro and Google, followed by a workshop dinner.
Congratulations to Associate Investigator Niko Suenderhauf for leading the workshop in conjunction with Research Fellow Juxi leitner, with support from Chief Investigator Michael Milford, Centre Director Peter Corke, and Professor Pieter Abbeel from UC Berkeley.
