Announcements from National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) -- ARIAC and Robotics Resources

Hi Everyone,

NIST has asked that I share two announcements from NIST. The first one is about ARAIC 2022 and the second is a new website sponsored by NIST

Dear Robotics Enthusiasts,

AI for Manufacturing Robotics

NIST is pleased to announce the launch of a new community hub for research on AI for Manufacturing Robotics.
Link: AI for Mfg. Robotics Initiative

On this site you’ll find several resources you may find of interest, including:

  • Curated lists of relevant datasets, papers, and software repositories
  • Learning resources on AI, Robotics, and the Manufacturing Industry
  • Community content such as our on-going Research Spotlight article series
  • Announcements/archives of workshops, conferences and more.

Please be sure to bookmark the site and join our slack at Join AI For Manufacturing Robotics Community on Slack | Slack if you found it helpful, since new material is being added regularly.
