Message From the Head of Computer Science of University of Manitoba:

Our lab has just won first place in the 2017 Humanoid Application Challenge at this year's IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Systems (IROS), IEEE's flagship robotics conference. The Humanoid Application Challenge is intended to be more open-ended than most other robotics competitions, in that entries are judged on dimensions of effectiveness and innovation in a given theme rather than stating a precisely defined goal such as winning a soccer competition. This perspective encourages creative entries that cross boundaries and bring together work from many areas of artificial intelligence that are important to intelligent humanoid robots, including vision, speech understanding, coordination, reasoning, machine learning, and human-robot interaction.
