Artificial intelligence and machine learning have received a large amount of attention in the last few years due to the remarkable advancements made by deep learning technology. Artificial intelligence and machine learning have also become an integral research area in robotic manipulation, allowing robots to adapt to new situations and operate more autonomously in unstructured environments. As a result, researchers from academia and various industries are now working to develop the next generation of intelligent robotic applications. Emphasis of the special issue will be given to "novel algorithms, theories and their applications" of artificial intelligence and machine learning used for robotic manipulation. The topic of the special issue includes, but are not limited to

Manipulation Planning

Optimization and Dynamic Programming in Manipulation

Multi-fingered Manipulation

Simulation of Manipulation

Visual Feedback in Manipulation

Assembly Tasks

Deep Learning for Perception in Manipulation

Deep Reinforcement Learning in Manipulation

In-hand Manipulation
