2019 Conference


The International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) is the premier gathering of professionals dedicated to the advancement of the branch of artificial intelligence known as machine learning. ICML is globally renowned for presenting and publishing cutting-edge research on all aspects of machine learning used in closely related areas like artificial intelligence, statistics and data science, as well as important application areas such as machine vision, computational biology, speech recognition, and robotics. ICML is one of the fastest growing artificial intelligence conferences in the world. Between June 9 and June 15, 2019, at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center in Long Beach, California, ICML will host over 8,000 participants.

Participants will learn: •How will machine learning and artificial intelligence transform the supply chain of the future? Is the business domains ready for such transformation?

This robotic arm for multitasking can be controlled with thoughts


Video: Who should be liable for robot misbehavior? Plenty of busy people have joked about needing an extra set of hands to juggle all their tasks, and now it just might be possible. Mind-controlled prosthetic limbs have already been developed for amputees, but the next level of bionics enhances healthy bodies and provides super-human abilities. Researchers at Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International in Japan demonstrated how healthy people can use an extra robotic arm to multitask. In an article published in Science Robotics, the researchers describe a study where healthy participants used their minds to control a robotic arm while they also used their human arms to do something else.


AAAI Conferences

This technical report presents the results of the final workshop of the Eighth AAAI Mobile Robot Competition and Exhibition. The workshop is typically held the last day of the conference, after all of the robot events have been completed, to allow the participants--mostly students--opportunity to describe the actual algorithms used and to share lessons learned. Participants are then invited to provide a paper for this proceedings.

The Cartoon Lounge: Him, Robot; I, Robert

The New Yorker

Actually, the robot in this video is gender neutral, which is how I like it, except on "Westworld," where I'm O.K. with robots being entertaining, homicidal sex machines. Now, you'll find my robot to be entertaining if you, like me, like Ping-Pong--it's a Ping-Pong robot. And, if you think Ping-Pong isn't a sport, just watch this. But, as with any sport, getting good at Ping-Pong requires practice. It's best to do that with a human partner, but, if all of the other three hundred million Ping-Pong participants are otherwise engaged, this episode of The Cartoon Lounge will show you how to get your game on.
