The Latin American Summer School on Cognitive Robotics (LACORO) aims at making cutting-edge knowledge on Artificial Intelligence for Robotics Applications accessible to everyone, especially in the Southern Hemisphere. Moreover, we want to foster intercultural student collaboration within and outside the Americas.

Our aims are:

  • to build a sustainable community of students, academics and professionals in the area of Artificial Intelligence for Robotics, particularly Cognitive Inspired Aspects of AI.
  • to make cutting-edge scientific topics accessible to everyone.
  • to overcome the complexity of a multi-cultural and interdisciplinary learning context.

We will organize the Summer School in Latin America biennially. LACORO will include cutting-edge lectures and tutorials on Artificial Intelligence and Robotics but also aspects of Human Cognition. Moreover, we will host a hackathon where attendees can acquire hands-on experience on some of the topics of the Summer School.

We believe it is imperative to host these types of events in Latin America to establish a robust research community on the American continent. Moreover, we think it is essential hosting educational events such as Summer Schools in Latin America because most events are held in the Northern Hemisphere and often the schedule conflicts with teaching activities in the Southern Hemisphere.
