In this workshop, we will focus on the following pillars of intelligence:

  • Visual perception and reasoning
  • Physical and causal reasoning
  • Sensory-motor learning
  • Active exploration, information-seeking, and curiosity
  • Curriculum setting
  • Learning in humans and machines, cognitive development, and nature versus nurture


This workshop will have a vertical structure, with researchers from all three disciplines participating in each focus topic. It will consist of talks by participating researchers, panel discussions, and poster sessions where students and postdocs can present their related work.
