Biological algorithms of sound localization may be useful in studying acoustic orientation of robots. One of us (Lakemeyer) collaborated in the software design of a mobile robot that can give guided tours through exhibitions, among other things. We now want to equip this robot with a sound localization and a speech recognition system. The Jeffress model of binaural interaction contains delay lines and coincidence detection. It is realized in the barn owl. We have implemented a Jeffress-like model on a computer and have tested it with noise and speech signals (Calmes et al., in preparation). This model works pretty well even in cluttered surroundings. Currently we are implementing the software on the robot.

Together with Bonding, the IMA/ZLW & IFU Institute Cluster, RWTH Aachen University and the Department for Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Robotics Group, FH Aachen we will host the Robotino Bonding Hackathon. Students will compete in small teams to develop the behavior of a robot operating in a simplified desaster scenario to develop effective behavior strategies to recover and prioritize items from the arena.
The event is organized by the Carologistics RoboCup Team.

In einem interidziplinären Forschungsprojekt entwickeln wir am Lehrstuhl für Ingenieurgeologie und Hydrogeologie (http://www.lih.rwth-aachen.de) und in der Knowledge Based Systems Group ein neuartiges Modellierungs- und Simulationsframework für komplexe soziale Systeme. Zur Unterstützung suchen wir kurzfristig eine studentische Hilfskraft.

Together with the IMA/ZLW & IFU Institute Cluster, RWTH Aachen University and the Department for Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Robotics Group, FH Aachen we founded a new joint team to participate in the RoboCup Logistics League sponsored by Festo (LLSF)
As a preparation for RoboCup 2013 in Eindhoven, there will be a Hackathon from February 25th to March 1st. The goal of this Hackathon is to develop high-level programs for reasoning and behavior execution for the new tasks and challenges in the LLSF. integrate a robotics system based on the Robotino robot, that can complete certain logistics task in a restricted environment.

In this seminar we will study several different approaches to and aspects of plan and activity recognition. Recognizing what other agents are doing is an important aspect of intelligent systems. For example, a domestic service robot needs to understand what the human is doing in order to interact with him in a reasonable way. And a self-driving car should know what the other traffic participants are doing right now and infer what they are going to do in the next moments. Different domains bring along different problems and needs for levels of expressiveness like partial observability, incomplete knowledge, non-deterministic actions, adversarial agents, potentially hazardous situations. We will study some of the latest research on these problems and work out the particular strengths and weaknesses.
The topics include recent papers on plan and activity recognition.

The SS 2013 proseminar will be on different (sub-)topics from artificial intelligence. We largely follow the lines of the well known textbook by Stuart Russell and Peter Norvig "Artificial Intelligence - A Modern Approach".
