|December 13th: The Return of the Light|
|The "Lucia" events on Artificial Intelligence and Robotics|
The fields of Artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics were strongly connected in the early days of AI, but became mostly disconnected later on. While there are several attempts at tackling them together, these remain isolated points in a landscape whose overall structure and extent is not clear. The goals of this series of events is to gather a group of people who, while coming from different communities, have long felt the need to combine the AI and Robotic traditions. These events aim to lead to a better defined and better recognized joint research field, and to create the next generation of researchers in this field who will realize integrated intelligent robots.
The events traditionally take place in Örebro, central Sweden, on the days around St. Lucia's day, December 13th.
