RoboCup demonstrated at Bletchley Park during the Loebner Prize Competition

Posted by noda on the 26th of November 2014.
Alan Turing is known as inventor of the Turing Machine, the master codebreaker during the Second World War at Bletchley Park, and the originator of the Turing test used to assess the performance level of a conversing AI. On 15. November 2014, the Loebner Prize Competition, the oldest running Turing-test competition, was held for the first time ever at Bletchley Park, where it will be taking place in the future. The RoboCup team of the University of Hertfordshire was invited to give a demonstration of its RoboCup Kidsize team at this opportunity.This confluence is particularly unique: the Loebner Prize Turing Award "coming home" to the original location of Turing's historic work being co-located with RoboCup, whose Grand Challenge can be seen as an embodied non-verbal form of Turing test. ....

4th International RoboCup MSL Workshop, Open Invitation

Posted by noda on the 8th of October 2014.

4th International RoboCup MSL Workshop, Open Invitation

Rule changes limiting continuous dribbling distance, and introducing mandatory passing have dramatically changed RoboCup MSL in the past couple of years. These step-changes are happening at a time where several new teams are starting up. Therefore MSL is a league in transition, which means knowledge exchange among teams is extra important.

To facilitate this, multiple initiatives have been taken by the community. A number of robot-designs are released under an open hardware license, and a low-cost robot platform has been developed. On top of this, a three-day workshop gets organized yearly.

This year the workshop will take place in Eindhoven, on November 10th, 11th and 12th. Building on earlier workshops in Stuttgart and last year at the University of Kassel, the goal of the workshop is to share knowledge among existing and startup teams, and to discuss future directions of the league.

The program contains a mini-symposium with presentations of different teams (Monday), a social event for which we will visit the GLOW festival (Monday evening), a hands-on part where participants work with software of other teams (Tuesday) and a discussion on the roadmap and on rule changes for the upcoming year (Wednesday).

Established MSL teams are invited, but we would also like to invite teams starting up, people considering to participate in MSL in the future or RoboCuppers who see possibilities to apply MSL technology to their own league or vice versa. Although traditionally mainly the European teams are participating, we would like to emphasize the workshop is also open for teams from outside Europe.

The workshop will be organized by Robin Soetens, Lotte de Koning and René van de Molengraft of Eindhoven University of Technology. In case you're interested in participating, please contact
