Cognitive Robotics (Dagstuhl Seminar 22391)

Authors: Fredrik Heintz, Gerhard Lakemeyer, and Sheila McIlraith

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 12, Issue 9 (2023)


Abstract
This report documents the program and the outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 22391 on the topic of "Cognitive Robotics". Cognitive Robotics is concerned with endowing robots or software agents with higher level cognitive functions that involve reasoning, for example, about goals, perception, actions, the mental states of other agents, and collaborative task execution. The seminar is the latest event in a series of events on this topic that were initiated in 1998. With its roots in knowledge representation and reasoning, the program for this seminar was influenced by transformative advances in machine learning and deep learning, by recent advances in human-robot interactions, and by issues that arise in the development of trustworthy cognitive robotic systems. Reflective of this, the seminar featured sessions devoted to the following four themes: cognitive robotics and KR, verification of cognitive robots, human-robot interaction and robot ethics, and planning and learning. Each theme consisted of plenary talks, plenary discussions and working groups resulting in a research road map for the coming years. There was also a poster session where new or published results could be presented by the participants. The seminar was very successful and well received by the participants thanks to the excellent environment for exchanging ideas provided by Schloss Dagstuhl.

Research with Collaborative Unmanned Aircraft Systems

Authors: Patrick Doherty, Jonas Kvarnström, Fredrik Heintz, D. Landen, and P.-M. Olsson

Published in: Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 10081, Cognitive Robotics (2010)


Abstract
We provide an overview of ongoing research which targets development of a principled framework for mixed-initiative interaction with unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). UASs are now becoming technologically mature enough to be integrated into civil society. Principled interaction between UASs and human resources is an essential component in their future uses in complex emergency services or bluelight scenarios. In our current research, we have targeted a triad of fundamental, interdependent conceptual issues: delegation, mixed- initiative interaction and adjustable autonomy, that is being used as a basis for developing a principled and well-defined framework for interaction. This can be used to clarify, validate and verify different types of interaction between human operators and UAS systems both theoretically and practically in UAS experimentation with our deployed platforms.

Stream-Based Reasoning in DyKnow

Authors: Fredrik Heintz, Jonas Kvarnström, and Patrick Doherty

Published in: Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 10081, Cognitive Robotics (2010)


Abstract
The information available to modern autonomous systems is often in the form of streams. As the number of sensors and other stream sources increases there is a growing need for incremental reasoning about the incomplete content of sets of streams in order to draw relevant conclusions and react to new situations as quickly as possible. To act rationally, autonomous agents often depend on high level reasoning components that require crisp, symbolic knowledge about the environment. Extensive processing at many levels of abstraction is required to generate such knowledge from noisy, incomplete and quantitative sensor data. We define knowledge processing middleware as a systematic approach to integrating and organizing such processing, and argue that connecting processing components with streams provides essential support for steady and timely flows of information. DyKnow is a concrete and implemented instantiation of such middleware, providing support for stream reasoning at several levels. First, the formal kpl language allows the specification of streams connecting knowledge processes and the required properties of such streams. Second, chronicle recognition incrementally detects complex events from streams of more primitive events. Third, complex metric temporal formulas can be incrementally evaluated over streams of states. DyKnow and the stream reasoning techniques are described and motivated in the context of a UAV traffic monitoring application.
