Workshop on Deep Learning for Robotic Vision, CVPR 2017


Recent advances in deep learning techniques have made impressive progress in many areas of computer vision, including classification, detection, and segmentation. While all of these areas are relevant to robotics applications, robotics also presents many unique challenges which require new approaches. Challenges include the need for real-time analysis, the need for accurate 3d understanding of scenes, and the difficulty of doing experiments at scale. There are also opportunities which robotics brings to computer vision, for example, the ability to use depth sensors, to control where the camera is looking, and to provide a data source for “grounded” learning of concepts, reducing the need for manual labeling. We will consider work related to deep learning techniques in computer vision applied to a broad range of robotic devices, from self driving cars to drones to bipedal robots.
