Workshop on visuo-motor integration

From : Thursday 06 June 2019 - 08:30

To     : Friday 07 June 2019 - 18:00

How does the brain coordinate visually guided actions enabling agents to meaningfully interact with a dynamic environment?  Can solutions developed by A.I. serve as models of visuomotor integration? Can we utilize neuroscientific insights to build robots capable of smoothly interacting with its environment?

This workshop aims at revisiting the complete visuomotor loop, from visual perception to motor control. Over the decades, neuroscience has created separate models and theories for individual functional components of the sensory-action path, e.g., for visual recognition, attention and eye-movement control. However, to gain a deeper insight into visomotor integration and in order to build a performant robot it is essential to understand how those components interact and produce meaningful behaviour.

The workshop will discuss the status of the Co-Design Project #4 of the Human Brain Project and its further directions.

The event is open to the HBP community and external attendees. Registration is free of charge but will be subject to approval.

  • Session II: Eye-movements and saccade motor control

  • Session III: Motor action and its neurorobotics implementation

  • Session IV: Validation and general discussion
