Title of the Talk

Vision in the loop for ASIMO: Architecture, Representation and Learning in Humanoid Vision Systems

Abstract

Artefacts like humanoid robots are on the way towards more natural interacting with humans. One main perceptive modality for such kind of interactions is vision, due to its versality and accuracy for short to mid distance interaction. The main areas considered here with vision in the loop are learning in communication and manipulation. We will consider both aspects from the systems perspective and discuss the specific aspects by means of real-time systems for visually guided whole body interaction and manipulation as well as on-line object learning on the robot ASIMO.

About the Speaker

Dr. Christian Goerick studied Electrical Engineering at the Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany, and at the Purdue University, Indiana, USA as a scholar of the DAAD (German academic exchange agency). He holds a Doctoral Degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Processing from the Ruhr-University of Bochum.

During his past career he held the positions of a Research Assistant, Doctoral Worker, Project Leader and Lecturer at the Institute for Neural Computation (INI), Chair for Theoretrical Biology, Bochum, Germany, where he contributed to and organized several governmentally and industry-funded large research projects in collaboration with the German Ministry of Science, Siemens, and major German car manufacturers.

Currently, Dr. Christian Goerick is Chief Scientist at the Honda Research Institute Europe GmbH, with responsibility for embodied brain-like intelligence covering research on behavior based vision, audition, behavior generation, robotics, car assistent systems, systems architecture as well as hard- and software environments. He furthermore holds the position of an invited Lecturer on image processing at the University of Applied Sciences Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
