The Studying for Caregiving Robots workshop at IEEE ICRA 2021 mentioned how studying can allow robotic techniques in direction of reaching constantly environment friendly and secure human help throughout actions of each day residing (ADLs). Right here we convey you the recordings of the workshop, together with talks from the 9 invited audio system and two panel discussions.
Robotic caregivers may enhance the independence of individuals with disabilities, enhance high quality of life, and assist deal with rising societal wants, corresponding to shortages of healthcare employees, getting older populations that require care, and excessive healthcare prices. Utilizing robotic expertise to help care-recipients of their each day lives might entail bodily interacting with them, adapting to their preferences, and perceiving the atmosphere for clever and secure help. These duties can profit from utilizing data-driven machine studying strategies. Studying for caregiving in actual houses is determined by sensing and performing utilizing real-world techniques in addition to metrics for fulfillment and generalization.
The first aims of the workshop had been to discover the next questions:
How can studying allow robotic techniques to attain environment friendly and secure help throughout (Instrumental) ADLs?
What roles ought to (or shouldn’t) studying play for robotic caregiving?
What are the alternatives and challenges of studying in robotic caregiving?
The workshop introduced collectively famend scientists and younger researchers from the machine studying and assistive robotics communities to share and focus on options that may beneficially affect human society. Benefit from the playlist with all of the recorded talks under!
