Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recently, we have witnessed a surge in interest in embodied AI that could explore and interact with complex environments. The design and control of such intelligent agents raise a large number of interesting research questions.

Within the last decade, advances in deep learning have resulted in remarkable progress in the computer vision and broader AI communities. This progress has enabled models to begin to obtain superhuman performance on a wide variety of passive tasks.

The research field of Embodied AI put the physical entity of our body in the middle of the research subject to gain further insights into intelligence, and explore how our brain and ourselves as a whole develop through physical interactions with the real world. In the age of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, the research of embodied intelligence is still highly important, and delivering even more valuable input to extend the impact of conventional AI technology in the near future.

For this reason, this special issue aims to bring together researches from the fields of computer vision, language, graphics, and robotics to share and discuss the current state of AI that can:

  • See: perceive their environment through vision or other senses.
  • Talk: hold a natural language dialog grounded in their environment.
  • Listen: understand and react to audio input anywhere in a scene.
  • Act: navigate and interact with their environment to accomplish goals.
  • Reason: consider and plan for the long-term consequences of their actions.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Robotics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
