Invitation to the lecture of Dr. Katerina Pastra Print

Στο πλαίσιο του ΔΠΜΣ Γεωπληροφορική, την Παρασκευή 25/1/2013, ώρα 10:00 στο Μικρό Αμφιθέατρο του Κτηρίου Λαμπαδαρίου, θα δοθεί διάλεξη από την Δρ. Κατερίνα Πάστρα από το Cognitive Systems Research Institute, Athens, Greece (, με τίτλο:


"Are all verbs equal? An Action-Centric structure for a Semantic Memory for Robots"



Inclusion of language in the robot seeing-robot acting-robot learning loop, is a requirement for cognitive robotics that goes well beyond  communication needs between humans and machines. A growing body of experimental research on how the human brain works, points to the fact that language and the motor system have co-evolved because one was functional to another. In this talk, we will present a new framework for language analysis that links language to embodiment, and contributes to bridging the analysis gap between language, perception and action.  We will show, how language can be parsed into denoted action-tree graphs, along the specifications of a generative grammar of action, and how such analysis is the meeting point with corresponding visual scene parsers. The resulting action structures have been used for the development of a 'semantic-memory' like module for robots, that will be demonstrated live.


Η διάλεξη απευθύνεται στους μεταπτυχιακούς φοιτητές του ΔΠΜΣ Γεωπληροφορική αλλά είναι ανοικτή και σε όλους.
