    Jennifer Jacquet: IMG Is Shame Necessary?



    Is Shame Necessary? is my first book, so I am far from having earned the right to discuss writing a book in general. But I can say something about... Continue »

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Design of cognitive systems for assistance to people poses a major challenge to the fields of robotics and artificial intelligence. The Cognitive Systems for Cognitive Assistance (CoSy) project was organized to address the issues of i) theoretical progress on design of cognitive systems ii) methods for implementation of systems and iii) empirical studies to further understand the use and interaction with such systems. To study, design and deploy cognitive systems there is a need to considers aspects of systems design, embodiment, perception, planning and error recovery, spatial insertion, knowledge acquisition and machine learning, dialog design and human robot interaction and systems integration. The CoSy project addressed all of these aspects over a period of four years and across two different domains of application - exploration of space and task / knowledge acquisition for manipulation. The present volume documents the results of the CoSy project. The CoSy project was funded by the European Commission as part of the Cognitive Systems Program within the 6th Framework Program.

Synopsis:

This book contains papers presented at the International Conference on Cognitive Systems CogSys 2008. It offers wide coverage of the emerging field of cognitive systems and gives an overview of an EU project cognitive systems for cognitive assistants.

Synopsis:

The technological progress in the fields of robotics, perception, artificial intelligence, computational power, mechatronics, and sensor systems allows for the first time the design and construction of truly intelligent systems that are able of reasoning, understanding, and learning through interaction with the physical and social environment. Truly intelligent cognitive systems will be able to operate in an autonomous way, to naturally interact with the world and humans. As done in this book, this requires coordinated and integrated research efforts of a wide range of disciplines such as robotics, biomechanics, complexity, neurosciences, as well as psychology.

This monograph presents the main results of the International Conference on Cognitive Systems CogSys 2008 held at Karlsruhe, April 2008.
