EMbodied AI: Trends, Challenges, and Opportunities (EMAI 2024)

in conjunction with ICIP 2024, Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Time - TBD

Overview 💡

The "Embodied AI: Exploring Trends, Challenges, and Opportunities" workshop at ICIP 2024 in Abu Dhabi, UAE, is an expansive forum dedicated to the intersection of Embodied AI and fields such as computer vision, language processing, graphics, and robotics. This workshop is designed to deepen the understanding of AI agents' capabilities in perceiving, interacting, and reasoning within their environments, thereby fostering an interdisciplinary dialogue among leading researchers and practitioners. Attendees can expect a comprehensive agenda including insightful invited talks from eminent figures in the field, a poster session showcasing cutting-edge research, and engaging panel discussions aimed at debating the future directions of intelligent, interactive systems. This event promises to be a pivotal gathering for those keen to contribute to and shape the ongoing advancements in Embodied AI.

The dedicated workshop on Embodied AI is essential due to its unique focus on integrating physical embodiment with AI capabilities, addressing challenges and opportunities not fully explored in the main ICIP conference. It merges computer vision and robotics, pushing beyond traditional boundaries to create agents that perceive, interact, and reason within their environments. This specialized forum encourages cross-disciplinary collaboration, fostering advancements that are vital for the development of intelligent, interactive systems, and addressing the gap between current image processing techniques and the future needs of AI research, including foundation models, robotics, and embodied intelligence.

The EMAI 2024 workshop stands at the confluence of Embodied AI and pivotal areas such as computer vision, natural language processing, graphics, and robotics. This synthesis is poised to catalyze significant momentum in the field, by bringing the frontier of foundation models, robotics, and embodied AI to the research community.
