WG 7: Learning Robotic Systems

Learning robotic systems are to be understood as physical, technical systems and represent embodied AI. This enables them to operate in the physical world. They can be used efficiently and safely in complex environments for the benefit of people, society and the economy - whether directly on humans, in social environments where many people interact, or in environments that are dangerous or difficult for humans to reach. Already today, robotic systems are increasingly being used in environments where this would have seemed inconceivable just a few years ago - for example, as body-worn systems in rehabilitation or to facilitate work in logistics, as cleaning or gardening robots in everyday life, or for customized production in small and medium-sized enterprises or in the skilled trades. Recent developments in the learning and adaptability of robot systems hold enormous potential.

Topics and organisation of the Working Group

The working group "Learning Robotic Systems" is dedicated to the benefits and potential of learning robotic systems for business and society. It also addresses challenges and control possibilities of such systems and outlines possible business models.
