Le attività Dipe Robotics & AI

La ricerca del Dipartimento di Eccellenza in Robotics & AI convolge un numero considerevole di docenti e ricercatori (circa l’80% del personale afferente ai tre Istituti che vi partecipano) e ha prodotto nel corso del primo periodo di finanziamento (2018-2022) numerose linee di ricerca sulla Robotica e l’intelligenza artificiale nei settori di AI e Scienze dei materiali.
Di seguito elenchiamo la lista dei temi di ricerca ai quali afferiscono gruppi di ricercatori sia interni che di altre università, e che hanno partecipato al raggiungimento di risultati scientifici nel corso di questo periodo. Per ciascuno dei temi inoltre, è disponibile una descrizione in allegato (esclusivamente in lingua inglese) dei contenuti del tema di ricerca, del team iniziale di lavoro e dei recenti risultati scientifici pubblicati (circa 400):
