The AI-Vision-Robotics-HCI Seminar is intended to bring researchers from the various aspects of AI, Vision, Robotics, and HCI to discuss and explain broad considerations and high-level tasks that the relevant communities are dealing with. The talks are intended to create awareness and interest for all of the members of these communities, hopefully bridging the gaps and creating collaborations. All are invited.
