New joint experiment by SCIoI and MPIB on swarm intelligence and decision-making at the Humboldt Labor
Great news from the Humboldt Labor! In addition to the already existing exhibition Nach der Natur, which features SCIoI through videos and installations, the Humboldt Lab also just inaugurated the SCIoI-MPIB joint experiment on individual and collective decision-making processes by our member Ralf Kurvers, which playfully investigates how visitors make judgments and how they incorporate the judgments of others.
New paper! Developing a new model to align event camera data
In their new ICCV paper, SCIoI members Pia Bideau and Guillermo Gallego, together with Cheng Gu, Erik Learned-Miller, and Daniel Sheldon, describe a new model to align the frames of an event camera and create a stable panorama that is easier to make sense of. Compared to traditional image-based cameras, event cameras work at high speed with a very
INTERVIEW: Alex Kacelnik on birds and what robots can learn from them
Try to pick up an object from a table. Depending on how tall or flat the object is, you are going to have to make decisions in order to move the right muscles and exert the right amount of grip. Although these mechanisms are commonplace to us, they require complex modeling if we want to reproduce
New paper! Learning in Social Interaction: perspectives from psychology and robotics
Applying Piaget’s and Vygotsky’s views to human and robotic learners’ imitation processes One of the aims of our cluster’s research is to facilitate communication between robotics and psychology. To do that, we apply key concepts of social learning in humans to understand how they correspond in robotics. A conference paper by Murat Kirtay, Johann Chevalère, Rebecca Lazarides,
