The Conference on Robot Learning (CoRL) is an annual international conference specialised in the intersection of robotics and machine learning. The fifth edition took place last week in London and virtually around the globe. Apart from the novelty of being a hybrid conference, this year the focus was put on openness. OpenReview was used for the peer review process, meaning that the reviewers’ comments and replies from the authors are public, for anyone to see. The research community suggests that open review could encourage mutual trust, respect, and openness to criticism, enable constructive and efficient quality assurance, increase transparency and accountability, facilitate wider, and more inclusive discussion, give reviewers recognition and make reviews citable [1]. You can access all CoRL 2021 papers and their corresponding reviews here. In addition, you may want to listen to all presentations, available in the conference YouTube channel.

In this post we bring you a glimpse of the conference through the most popular tweets written last week. Cool robot demos, short and sweet explanation of papers and award finalists to look forward to next year’s edition in New Zealand. Enjoy!

Robots, robots, robots!

Robots can be companions, caregivers, collaborators — and social influencers

People are hardwired to respond socially to technology that presents itself as even vaguely social. While this may sound like the beginnings of a Black Mirror episode, this tendency is precisely what allows us to enjoy social interactions with robots and place them in caregiver, collaborator or companion roles.

Finding inspiration in starfish larva

Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed a tiny robot that mimics the movement of a starfish larva. It is driven by sound waves and equipped with tiny hairs that direct the fluid around it, just like its natural model. In the future, such microswimmers could deliver drugs to diseased cells with pinpoint accuracy.
