RoboCup at AAAI-15
AAAI and the RoboCup Federation are pleased to announce a cooperation to bring a RoboCup soccer exhibition match to AAAI-15.
The RoboCup competitions have promoted research on artificial intelligence and robotics since 1997. One of their main foci is the worldwide popular game of soccer, with the aim to build fully autonomous cooperative multirobot systems that perform well in dynamic and adversarial environments.
Given the recent expansion of interest in intelligent robotics, AAAI and the RoboCup Federation, with the help of the National Science Foundation, are cosponsoring a RoboCup soccer exhibition match at AAAI-15 to showcase the state-of-the-art in robotics soccer to the broad artificial intelligence research community and spur additional interest in this exciting testbed for intelligent systems. The participating teams will be UPennalizers from The University of Pennsylvania, UT Austin Villa from the University of Texas at Austin, and rUNSWift from the University of New South Wales. Each team won a championship at the 2014 international competition (in the Humanoid League, 3D Simulation League, and Standard Platform League respectively). They will demonstrate a game according to the regulations of the Standard Platform League, in which all teams use identical Aldebaran Nao robots.
Details will be available in the AAAI-15 program.
