ERA Chair in Artificial Intelligence for Robotics



AIFORS is a Horizon 2020 ERA Chair project which aims to create an ERA Chair in Artificial Intelligence for Robotics at the University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (UNIZG-FER). It will enable UNIZG-FER to attract an outstanding researcher and five team members to independently implement an ambitious research strategy in AI for robotics. This will open UNIZG-FER to a new research direction with a high potential for research outputs and technology innovation. The ERA Chair holder will establish and lead a Research Group for Artificial Intelligence for Robotics assigned to the Laboratory for Autonomous Systems and Mobile Robotics (LAMOR).

On September 21, 2022, prof. Fabio Bonsignorio gave an invited talk entitled Towards Intelligent Soft Robotics – A New Paradigm Physical AI unifying Robust and Adaptive Soft Robotics and AI at the 7th International Workshop on Advanced Cooperative Systems, organized by the National Center of Research Excellence for Data Science and Cooperative Systems and coordinated by prof. Ivan Petrović, the AIFORS coordinator.

This was a good opportunity to present the research strategy of the ERA Chair to the local community, as the workshop was attended by more than 70 professors, postdocs and PhD students from UNIZG-FER. This led to a series of follow-up meetings between prof. Bonsignorio and colleagues from UNIZG-FER, where the possibility of mutual collaboration was discussed.
