The 2nd International Workshop on Adaptive Robotic Ecologies (ARE’13) is part of the AmI 2013: 4th International Joint Conference on Ambient Intelligence (AmI), which is scheduled to be held December 3-5, 2013 in Dublin, Ireland.
During this conference, Robotic Ecologies will be the main topic. Robotic Ecologies can be described as networks of diverse robotic devices widely embedded in everyday environments, where they collaborate in applications like Ambient Assisted Living. Furthermore, the organizers of Robotic Ecologies, aim to bring together advanced contributions which detail solutions that would allow Robotic Ecologies to be self-learning, -configuring, and -adapting. These three functions, allow them to increase their adaptability, while simultaneously reducing the amount of preparation and pre-programming needed for when they are released into the real world.
At the workshop, topics like, building smart environments from multiple robotic devices, are an example of the type of application that could be considered and reviewed. The building of these smart environments, could potentially reduce the individual complexity of the robotic devices, while at the same time, enhance the individual values specific to the devices involved by allowing new functions that cannot be performed by any device on their own. Also included in this conference/workshop are the following topics:
This conference is being organized by RUBICON Project, which is funded by the European Framework Programme.
