What is
EASE?

EASE is an interdisciplinary research center at the University of Bremen that investigates
everyday activity science & engineering. Its core purpose is to advance our understanding
of how human-scale manipulation tasks can be mastered by robotic agents. To achieve this,
EASE establishes the research area “Everyday Activity Science and Engineering” and
creates a research community that conducts open research, open training, open data, and
knowledge sharing.

Research

Everyday Activity Science and Engineering (EASE) is the study of the design, realization, and analysis of information processing models that enable robotic agents – and humans – to master complex manipulation tasks that are mundane and routine, but complex.

Community-based approach

We bring together researchers in the fields of artificial intelligence, robotics and cognitive science to allow the synergistic combination and integration of the contributing areas. EASE generates open-source software as well as open knowledge and data.

Challenges & Milestones
