Title: Structured Representations for Robot Behaviour

The lectures of this course will be given within the master course on Seminars in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics

This course will cover a wide range of approaches for generating behaviour in intelligent autonomous robots, focussing particularly on mobile service robots. In general we will look at approaches which rely on explicit representations of the kinds of knowledge essential for robots operating in human environments, e.g. knowledge of space and time, of how the world changes with and without the robot's input, and how multiple robots can work together. Each session will be in two halves. The first half will involve a presentation of approaches from the literature. The second half will be a discussion of a particular paper, which everyone will have read in advance, led by a nominated group of students.
