Robotics and Neuroscience: Models of Cognitive Development and Learning Mechanisms

03.12.2019 - 04.12.2019

Venue: Maison internationale de la recherche, Neuville-sur-Oise

During this symposium, we would like to cross approaches from computational neurosciences and bio-inspired robotics, with links with development and learning.

The questions addressed are:

What are the advances in computational neurosciences and what are important bio-inspired learning mechanisms for cognition still missing in robots?
Which neural and cognitive architectures should be favored?
What are the current AI algorithms are missing?
What are the developmental steps to consider to imitate the cognitive abilities of the child still inaccessible in robotics?
We have selected a first list of guests that we want to have with us, subject to acceptance.

Invited speakers :

– Simon Thorpe, directeur CNRS, Centre de Recherche Cerveau et Cognition - UMR 5549 - CERCO, Paul Sabatier University - Toulouse III

– Gregor Schoner, professor, Institut for NeuroInformatik, University of Bochum

– Jeff Krichmar, professor at Department of Cognitive Sciences and the Department of Computer Science, University of California, Irvine

– Emmanuel Dupoux, Directeur d’Etudes Laboratoire de Science Cognitive et Psycholinguistique. ENS

– Diogo Pata, Researcher, Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology

– Yasuo Kuniyoshi, professor at Department of Mecanics and Computer Sciences, university of Tokyo
