3rd European Network for the Advancement of Artificial Cognitive Systems, Interaction and Robotics

Project description


Virtual Physiological Human

The EUCogIII project organises a network of many hundreds of researchers and continues building the cognitive systems community in Europe, which straddles the divides of traditional academic disciplines in its work towards artificial intelligent systems that are autonomous, robust, flexible and self-improving in pursuing their goals. EUCogIII focuses on reaching out to show what artificial cognitive systems research has to offer and to increase the impact of the research already done. EUCogIII builds bridges from the network to related communities, especially with a view towards application of artificial cognitive systems research in robotics, but also in other areas of industry that move towards systems that are more intelligent and inspired by natural systems.

The 3rd European Network for the Advancement of Artificial Cognitive Systems, Interaction and Robotics (EUCogIII) will organise a network of many hundreds of researchers and continue building the cognitive systems community in Europe, which straddles the divides of traditional academic disciplines in its work towards artificial intelligent systems that are autonomous, robust, flexible and self-improving in pursuing their goals. Such a network is the grease for the gears of research; fostering a self-standing community with clear aims that can produce efficient, focused research with deep impact.Further to building the community itself, EUCogIII will focus on reaching out to show what artificial cognitive systems research has to offer and to increase the impact of the research already done; this outreach will centre on a specific selection of themes and communities that lend themselves well to this purpose.Structurally we will build bridges from the network to related communities, to extant organisations and networks especially with a view towards application of artificial cognitive systems research in robotics, but also in other areas of industry that move towards systems that are more intelligent and inspired by natural systems. This orientation towards application also provides added focus to cognitive artificial systems research itself. To further the community, the EUCogIII network will provide and support education of new researchers (of PhD student level) on the latest developments at the cutting edge of science. Finally our network will provide a 'one-stop-shop' of online resources, as a service to the community.In terms of specific activities in work packages, we provide structures and content in WP 1 'Outreach', WP 2 'Bridges', WP 3 'Education', WP 4 'Online Resources' and we organise these, in WP 5 academic 'Coordination' and WP 6 'Management' of finances and events.
