“FAME” Research Initiative by the CoAI JRC’s Michael Beetz will Enable Robots to Visualize Future Actions

An important challenge for cooperative and cognition-enabled robotics is to develop robots that have the ability to consider different possible courses of action and their likely outcomes before selecting one. This is especially important for robots that are engaged in joint tasks with human partners in which the sub-tasks and individual steps have not yet […]
