Distinguished Speaker Series - Science of Intelligence (SCIoI): Filling the Cognitive Gap for Everyday Tasks (Michael Beetz, Universität Bremen)

Mar 21, 2024 | 04:00 PM - 05:30 PM

In this talk Prof. Beetz introduces Digital Mental Models (DMMs) as a novel cognitive capability of AI-powered and cognition-enabled robots. By combining digital twin technology with symbolic knowledge representation and embodying this combination into robots, we tackle the challenge of converting vague task requests into specific robot actions, that is robot motions that cause desired physical effects and avoid unwanted side effects. This breakthrough enables robots to perform everyday manipulation tasks with an unprecedented level of context-sensitivity, foresight, generality, and transferability. DMMs narrow the cognitive divide currently existing in robotics by equipping robots with a profound understanding of the physical world and how it works.

This talk will take place in English at SCIoI.

The Cluster of Excellence ”Science of Intelligence (SCIoI)” is part of the Berlin University Alliance‘s Excellence Strategy.

The event is addressed to researchers, scientists, science interested people, general public
