|Anchoring Symbols to Sensor Data||July 26, 2004 - San Jose, California|
Anchoring is the problem of how to create, and to maintain in time, the connection between symbol- and signal-level representations of the same physical objects. Anchoring is an important aspect of the connection between symbolic reasoning and sensory processes in autonomous robots. Anchoring must also occur in multiple robot systems whenever the robots exchange information via symbolic representations. This is also needed for efficient human-robot cooperation.
This worskhop is the third in a series of events whose aim is to bring together researchers from different disciplines who need to find practical solutions to the anchoring problem. In addition, this workshop will aim at making contact with all communities that address tasks in which anchoring is present even if it is not mentioned explicitly.
