EMBODIED INTELLIGENCE CONFERENCE’22

Interested in an in-person event? Please attend RoboSoft2022 EI Workshop in Edinburgh UK.

WELCOME TO THE 2ND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON EMBODIED INTELLIGENCE TO BE HELD ONLINE ON MARCH 23-25, 2022

This free event brings together a wide range of speakers to discuss the many challenges and opportunities in Embodied Intelligence research! The workshop is structured with a morning session and afternoon session each day to accommodate different time zones. Each session includes plenary talks, panel discussions (including flash talks by leading researchers), and breakout sessions as shown in the tentative programme here. While plenary and panel speakers are invitation-only, we solicit wider contributions in breakout sessions to facilitate more focused and technical discussions.

The preliminary programme can be accessed here.

We want to use this conference to answer some of the key open questions relating to EI, this includes, but is not limited to:

  • What is (embodied) intelligence?
  • How does computation come about from embodiment?
  • How does language emerge?
  • How do we understand intelligence and what theories do we have to represent it?
  • What are the common curriencies?
  • How can we measure complexity?
  • What can not be done by computation intelligence?
  • What ethical questions arise from EI?

SPEAKERS

The conference brings together speakers from across wide number of disciplines to facilitate discussion on the Embodied Intelligence, and the future of this topic.
