The AAAI 2008 Robotics and Creativity Workshop
The AAAI 2008 Robotics and Creativity Workshop was held in Chicago on July 14, 2008, which was immediately followed by the Robotics Exhibition over the next 3 days. In 2008, the AAAI Robotics organizers eschewed the previous format of a Robot Competition, choosing instead to focus on groundbreaking work representing two areas of robotics: creativity and mobility & manipulation (detailed in a separate article). Both workshops were held on July 14, and the Robotics Exhibition included participants from both categories. The Robotics and Creativity Workshop was made possible through the support of the National Science Foundation’s CreativeIT program and Microsoft Research.
