One of the early goals of AI consisted of building complete intelligent robots. This goal has shown to be quite challenging, and AI and robotics researchers have isolated its many facets and focused on making progress on each facet separately. Both AI and robotics have matured enormously since those days, and today there is a growing interest in getting the two fields back together. Many in robotics believe that the next quantum leap will come by adding capabilities which lie at the core of AI research, like task planning, knowledge representation, learning, and natural interaction. Symmetrically, AI researchers show interest in embedding their techniques in platforms that can perceive, reason and act in real, dynamic physical environments.
Despite this mutual interest, there is no mainstream venue where the AI and robotics communities can meet. Researchers in either field are thus often unaware of the methodology, the successes and the limitations in the other one. The goal of this workshop is to contribute to the creation of a joint community of AI and Robotics researchers that can fill this gap.
