雷锋网(公众号:雷锋网) AI 科技评论按:本周,ICRA 2018 正式在澳大利亚布里斯班举办。作为 IEEE 机器人与自动化学会(IEEE Robotics and Automation Society)的重要会议,学术论文自然成为了不可忽视的一个部分。今年在论文上又有哪些最新进展,又有哪些领域成为最受关注的研究方向?雷锋网 AI 科技评论根据第一天的开幕式环节及官方发布的数据,整理了相应的重要看点。

机器人学是一个涵盖领域广阔、应用方向纵深的学科,从 ICRA 2018 可见一斑。ICRA 2018 共收到来自 800 个研究机构的 3681 位作者的投稿,共计 2586 篇,其中 1981 篇 ICRA 论文, 605 篇 RAL 论文,相较去年有 48% 的增长。

从投递论文数来看,美国仍然是学术研究的高产大国,以 630 篇论文领跑 ICRA 2018;而位于第二梯队的则是中国(230 篇)、德国(159 篇)、日本(115 篇);第三梯队的意大利、法国、英国、韩国均在 80 篇左右。

而从国家每百万人口的论文平均投递数来看,人口多的国家显然就不占优势了。凭借人均近 14 篇论文的骄人成绩,第一名被新加坡摘得;随后是瑞士和澳大利亚。

从论文接收率来看,ICRA 相比起其它学术会议来说还是比较高的,平均值为 40.9%,今年的接收率也延续了往年平均数。而值得一提的是,在上海举办的 ICRA 2011 以及在香港举办的 ICRA 2014 都呈现了较高的接收率,ICRA 2011 达到了惊人的 52%,而 ICRA 2014 则逼近 50%。两个接收率低于 40% 的 ICRA 会议分别是 ICRA 2013(德国卡尔斯鲁厄)以及不到 35% 的 ICRA 2015(瑞典斯德哥尔摩)。

本届 ICRA 总与会人数超过 2800 人,有 1052 位论文作者在会上分享他们最前沿的研究观点。近 2000 篇主会论文包含 152 个机器人相关的研究方向;其中 35 篇获奖提名论文占总论文数约 3%。

据统计,「Deep Learning in Robotics and Automation(机器人与自动化的深度学习)」共有 124 篇相关文章,以 10% 的比重顺理成章地成为了最受关注的热门研究领域。其中,有 7 篇获奖提名论文可以归类于这一领域,它们分别是(后方括号为获奖类别):

  • Interactively Picking Real-World Objects with Unconstrained Spoken Language Instructions(HRI)

  • LabelFusion: A Pipeline for Generating Ground Truth Labels for Real RGBD Data of Cluttered Scenes(Vision)

  • Optimization Beyond the Convolution: Generalizing Spatial Relations with End-to-End Metric Learning(Vision)

  • Learning Object Grasping for Soft Robot Hands(Manipulation)

  • Learning Robotic Assembly from CAD(Automation)

  • Online Learning of a Memory for Learning Rates(Conference)

  • Social Attention: Modeling Attention in Human Crowds(Cognitive)

而排名第二热门的「Motion and Path Planning(运动与路径规划)」则有 107 篇论文,有三篇获奖提名论文可以归类于这领域,它们分别是:

  • Learning Robotic Assembly from CAD(Automation)

  • PRM-RL: Long-range Robotic Navigation Tasks by Combining Reinforcement Learning and Sampling-based Planning(Service)

  • Where to Look? Predictive Perception with Applications to Planetary Exploration(Service)

(细心的读者朋友不难发现,Learning Robotic Assembly from CAD 这篇论文同时覆盖了两个最为热门的领域。)

尾随其后的 Localization 有 81 篇相关论文,但没有获奖提名论文。SLAM、Learning and Adaptive Systems、Multi-Robot Systems 均有超过 60 篇相关论文,也分别有四篇获奖提名论文属于对应领域。

不过值得一提的是,机器人学具有明显的长尾效应。在 120 个研究领域中,前十个热门研究领域的投递论文超过了一半。以「机器人与自动化的深度学习」和「运动与路径规划」为例,相应的研究人员就超过了 800 位。

在所有论文中,有 7 位教授学者在论文投递数量上遥遥领先,包括:
