Workshop on Robotics and Creativity: July 14, 2008 Morning
This workshop explores the roles that creativity plays in robotics. This includes research where robots employ cognitive models and computation to display creativity. Also explored are partnerships among artists, scientists and engineers to generate a creative synergy and stimulate breakthroughs.
Format: A distinguished panel will kick off the workshop by providing a broad overview of the area, emerging paradigms and exciting opportunities. Those invited to exhibit at AAAI, will give short 10-minute briefs. These talks provide examples and personal thoughts of creativity and robotics. The workshop concludes with a 60-min Discussion Forum to capture thoughts and generate research roadmaps.

Founded in 1979, the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (formerly the American Association for Artificial Intelligence) (www.aaai.org) is a nonprofit scientific membership society devoted to advancing the science and practice of AI. Its mission is to: (1) advance the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying intelligent thought and behavior, (2) facilitate their embodiment in machines, (3) serve as an information resource for research planners and the general public concerning trends in AI, and (4) offer training for the current and coming generations of AI researchers and practitioners. The Association sponsors a number of conferences and workshops each year.
