Seasonal School

Artificial Intelligence and RObotics in exteNded rEality (AIRONE)


Deadline for Registration

April 19th 2021

Learning objectives

In the forthcoming decade eXtended Reality (XR) technologies, i.e. Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality, and collaborative robots will become ubiquitous. Then, the XR combination with robots and human-centric Artificial Intelligence will enable distributed environments to be developed where humans, robots and virtual entities coexist, and may become the sentient embodiment of remote human operators. The AIRONE School will cover specific research topics underpinning this paradigm shift affecting technology, perception and interaction.

By the end of the AIRONE School, participants will have learnt the main aspects of eXtended Reality, the basics for the design and control of collaborative and wearable robots for immersive telepresence, and the fundamentals of machine learning and AI applied to Robotics and artificial vision systems.

Teaching methodologies

The AIRONE initiative will deliver both lectures and hands-on lab sessions. Key teachers from the international research community will offer AIRONE participants a live experience of research at the intersection of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and XR.

Who should attend this Seasonal School?

Undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD students in engineering and related disciplines who are interested in research and technology and in exploring the potential of combining eXtended Reality, Robotics, and Artificial Intelligence.
