AAAI-15 and IEEE Robotics and Automation Society Joint Events
The Twenty-Ninth Conference on Artificial Intelligence
January 25–30, 2015, Austin, Texas USA
AAAI and the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) are pleased to announce a series of special joint events in 2015 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Shakey project.
The goal of building intelligent robots has been a motivating problem for generations of researchers. Starting around 1965, Shakey was one of the first efforts to build an autonomous, intelligent robot. The project resulted in seminal contributions with far-reaching implications for both AI and robotics.
Given the recent expansion of interest in intelligent robotics, AAAI and RAS are cosponsoring events to celebrate the connections between the artificial intelligence and robotics communities at the flagship conferences, AAAI-15 (to be held 25-29 January in Austin, Texas, US) and ICRA 2015 (to be held 26-30 May in Seattle, Washington, US).
Details will be available on the AAAI-15 and ICRA 2015 websites.
