 +    develop skills. ​ Considering children, it seems natural that they 
 +    have their own agenda. They explore their environment in a playful 
 +    way, without the necessity for somebody to tell them what to do 
 +    next. With robots the situation is different. There are many 
 +    methods to let robots learn to do something, but it is always 
 +    about learning to do a specific task from a supervision 
 +    signal. Unfortunately,​ these methods do not scale well to systems 
 +    with many degrees of freedom, except a good prestructuring is 
 +    available. ​ The hypothesis is that if the robots first learn to 
 +    use their bodies and interact with the environment in a playful 
 +    way they can acquire many small skills with which they can later 
 +    solve complicated tasks much quicker. In the talk I will present 
 +    my steps into this direction. Starting from some general 
 +    information theoretic consideration we provide robots with an own 
 +    drive to do something and explore their behavioral 
 +    capabilities. Technically,​ this is achieved by considering the 
 +    sensorimotor loop as a dynamical system, whose parameters are 
 +    adapted online according to a gradient ascent on an approximated 
 +    information quantity. ​ I'll show examples of simulated and real 
 +    robots behaving in a self-determined way and present future 
 +    directions.</​blockquote>​</​td></​tr><​tr valign="​top"><​td>​2019-07-17</​td><​td>​Matteo Saveriano contributes a talk <​i>​From Intuitive Skill Transfer to Large-Scale Robotic Knowledge Bases</​i>​ at <a href="​https://​www.uibk.ac.at/​disc/​events/">​DiSCourse - The Digital Science Seminar Series</​a>,​ Department of Computer Science, University of Innsbruck.</​td></​tr><​tr valign="​top"><​td>​2019-07-15</​td><​td>​David Peer contributes a talk <​i>​Vector Routing in Capsule Networks</​i>​ at School of Learning, Perception and Robotics (SPROuT), Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science, University of Trento.</​td></​tr><​tr valign="​top"><​td>​2019-07-15</​td><​td>​Sayantan Auddy contributes a talk <​i>​Progress,​ Compress and Expand - A framework for lifelong learning of
