An Object Template Approach to Manipulation for Humanoid Avatar Robots for Rescue Tasks
KI - Künstliche Intelligenz: Vol. 30, No. 0
Nowadays, the first steps towards the use of remote mobile robots to perform rescue tasks in disaster environments have been made possible. However, these environments still present several challenges for robots, which open new possibilities for research and development. For example, fully autonomous robots are not yet ...
From Object Recognition to Activity Interpretation and Back, Based on Point Cloud Data
KI - Künstliche Intelligenz: Vol. 27, No. 2
Semantic mapping of static environments has become a hot topic in robotics. The aim of the Mermaid project was to investigate the transfer of a sensor data interpretation approach for mapping to the problem of activity recognition in smart home applications such as elderly care. The basic structure of the semantic mapping ...
Affective Computing Combined with Android Science
KI - Künstliche Intelligenz: Vol. 25, No. 3
In this report a number of research projects are summarized that aimed at investigating the emotional effects of android robots. In particular, those robots are focused on that have been developed and are incessantly being improved by Hiroshi Ishiguro at both the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International ...
A Survey of Multi-Agent Decision Making
KI - Künstliche Intelligenz: Vol. 28, No. 3
In this article we give a high-level overview of various aspects relevant to multi-agent decision making. Classical decision theory makes the start. Then, we introduce multi-agent decision making, focussing on game theory, complex decision making, and on intelligent agents. Afterwards, we discuss methods for reaching ...
Heuristic Evaluation Functions for General Game Playing
KI - Künstliche Intelligenz: Vol. 25, No. 1
This dissertation explores the problem of constructing an effective general game-playing program, with an emphasis on techniques for automatically constructing effective heuristic evaluation functions from game descriptions. A technique based on abstract models of games is presented. The abstract model treats mobility, ...
Interview with John F. Reid Concerning the Future of Service Robots in Forestry and Agricultural Applications
KI - Künstliche Intelligenz: Vol. 25, No. 2
Polynomial Algorithms for Computing a Single Preferred Assertional-Based Repair
KI - Künstliche Intelligenz: Vol. 31, No. 1
This paper investigates different approaches for handling inconsistent DL-Lite knowledge bases in the case where the assertional base is prioritized and inconsistent with the terminological base. The inconsistency problem often happens when the assertions are provided by multiple conflicting sources having different ...
