4th PhD school on "AI and Robotics"
September 4th: The Triumph of Light!
The Fourth Lucia PhD School on "Artificial Intelligence and Robotics"


The fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotics were strongly connected in the early days of AI, but have since diverged. Typical graduate student curricula concentrate on AI or on robotics, but rarely on both. Students in one area are seldomly aware of the concepts, methods, and achievements in the other one. This Winter School aims at filling this educational gap, by forming the next generation of researchers that will realize integrated intelligent robots. Students will be exposed to technologies at the forefront of research in AI and in Robotics. This is the fourth edition of the successful Schools held in 2013, 2014, and 2016 (see below).

This School will take place at the Instituto Superior Técnico, in Lisbon, Portugal, between: September 4th and 8th, 2017. Please check the items below for more information about the School and how to apply.
