Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays an important role in smart manufacturing, especially when humans team up with industrial robots in factories. As an emerging trend, human-robot collaboration (HRC) powered by AI has attracted increasing attention in recent years. For example, in human-robot collaborative assembly, robots are often required to dynamically change their pre-planned trajectories and control parameters to collaborate with humans in a shared workspace. However, industrial robots used today in factories are still controlled by pre-generated rigid codes that cannot support effective HRC that requires runtime adaptability. In response to the needs of better adaptability, human motion prediction for example is crucial for both collision avoidance and proactive assistance of robots to humans, in addition to multi-modal robot control and in-situ operator support. As a popular AI approach, Deep learning is proving to be useful for classification, recognition and context awareness identification. Within the context, this AI for Good webinar will provide the status as well as technical treatments of relevant technologies employed in HRC. Remaining challenges and future research directions will also be highlighted.
This live event includes a 30-minute networking event hosted on the AI for Good Neural Network. This is your opportunity to ask questions, interact with the panelists and participants and build connections with the AI for Good community.
