The INVERSE project, in which Assoc. Prof. Dr. Emre Uğur is involved as a partner, has been accepted within the scope of the Horizon Europe program under the CL4-2023-DIGITAL-EMERGING call.

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Emre Uğur has received a grant as a partner in  the project titled "INteractive robots that intuitiVely lEarn to inVErt tasks by ReaSoning about their Execution" (INVERSE) under the call titled "HORIZON-CL4-2023-DIGITAL-EMERGING-01-01: Novel paradigms and approaches, towards AI-driven autonomous robots (AI, data, and robotics partnership) (RIA)". The project consortium consists of 11 institutions, and Boğaziçi University has been awarded a budget of 745,000 Euros, while the project's total budget is 8 million Euros.

 The INVERSE project aims to provide robots with these essential cognitive abilities by adopting a continual learning approach. After an initial bootstrap phase, used to create initial knowledge from human-level specifications, the robot refines its repertoire by capitalising on its own experience and on human feedback. This experience-driven strategy permits to frame different problems, like performing a task in a different domain, as a problem of fault detection and recovery. Humans have a central role in INVERSE, since their supervision helps limit the complexity of the refinement loop, making the solution suitable for deployment in production scenarios. The effectiveness of developed solutions will be demonstrated in two complementary use cases designed to be a realistic instantiation of the actual work environments.
