Dear all,


We are excited to announce the 2nd AI Olympics with RealAIGym, a competition focused on advancing artificial intelligence and robotics, taking place at IROS 2024. We invite motivated students and researchers in AI, machine learning, reinforcement learning, optimal control, and related areas to participate in this unique challenge.


Visit our website https://ai-olympics.dfki-bremen.de for more details.


The AI Olympics focuses on advancing the field of agile real-robot control by providing a set of standard dynamic tasks on classical underactuated robotic platforms, such as the Acrobot and Pendubot. Participants will first work in simulation, and the top 4 teams will be selected to carry out experiments on the real robots. The challenge aims to improve the athletic intelligence of robots, stimulate algorithmic advancements, and facilitate reproducibility in robotics and reinforcement learning communities. Participants will compete on the RealAIGym leaderboards https://dfki-ric-underactuated-lab.github.io/real_ai_gym_leaderboard/.

This time, the focus is not only on achieving the best scores but also on achieving robustness to randomized external disturbances during the execution. So, prepare your controllers for dealing with nastier dynamics!
