Preferred Networks received the Best Paper Award on Human-Robot Interaction in ICRA 2018.

ICRA(International Conference on Robotics and Automation), one of the top conferences in Robotics organized by Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), was held in Brisbane, Australia from May 21-25, 2018. In this conference, our paper “Interactively Picking Real-World Objects with Unconstrained Spoken Language Instructions” was awarded the Best Paper Award on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI).

At PFN, we are applying the latest Image processing and natural language processing technologies as a means of communication between humans and robots. Our latest work has succeeded in building an interactive system in which you can use unconstrained spoken language instructions to operate a common object picking task.

PFN will continue to research and develop the cutting-edge technology and promote its application to the industry.

 

The details of the PFN’s paper “Interactively Picking Real-World Objects with Unconstrained Spoken Language Instructions” and video are available on the following website.
