The way ahead by UDC

The road ahead for project PILLAR-Robots

Project PILLAR-Robots and the UDC

In the project, we bring together diverse skills. In development of cognitive architecture for robotic control, in AI and Machine Learning, representation learning, natural language processing, robot perception, in applications for different industrial cases, researchers in various aspects of social sciences and ethics, and in commercializing robotics solutions.

The group is made up of  70 people but at the moment we all have something in common by being in one way or another linked to the project consortium. However we hope to go beyond this initial circle. With this website, we hope to offer a first way to reach people that are interested in autonomous robots, particularly in Purposeful Intrinsically Motivated Open-ended Learning’ (PIMOL). In fact, our aim is to create a vibrant and growing PIMOL community of researchers, innovation and technology forecasters, and potential early adopters. All of them can join us on this journey that we have recently begun. We have an important goal and we would like to keep you connected and informed of the progress we are making. 

This website will be the main gateway to PILLAR-Robots for all stakeholders, inside and outside Europe. Here you can find general information on the project advances, as well as the relationship established with sister projects, or the coordination maintained with European and international networks and platforms. If you share our vision and like what we do, please follow our website regularly, and we hope you will find updates of interest to you. This website, in combination with the different social media channels, can give you first-hand knowledge of all the latest updates.

For those people and organisations willing to explore a closer relationship with PILLAR-Robots, we offer to build a privileged relationship with them. For this, the role of the “friendly stakeholder” has been created. For building these roles with friendly stakeholders, we would  hope to start this relationship through connections at  exhibitions or other events we organise or attend. As a second step, we would fix a face-to-face meeting and explore possible collaborations, among others, to favour the demonstration phase or the uptake of results. In certain cases, when this relationship may be particularly beneficial, we even contemplate that these stakeholders may become part of the consortium.

The group is made up of  70 people. However, this is just the beginning, and we hope there is much more to come!
