-If robots are to perform everyday tasks in the real world, they will need sophisticated tactile sensing. The tactile data must be integrated into multi-sensory representations that support exploration, manipulation, and other tasks.  +<WRAP box left 50%>**[[https://sites.google.com/view/rss17ts/overview|Tactile sensing for manipulation]]**\\ 
-This workshop asks the following questions: +If robots are to perform everyday tasks in the real world, they will need sophisticated tactile sensing. The tactile data must be integrated into multi-sensory representations that support exploration, manipulation, and other tasks.\\ 
- +</WRAP> 
-  * What kinds of tactile technologies are currently available, and what are needed? +[[https://sites.google.com/view/rss17ts/overview|{{:rss17-1.png?250}}]] 
-  * What type of representations are best for capturing and exploiting tactile data? +//      (workshop held July 15, 2017)//\\ 
-  * How can tactile information be combined with other information to support specific tasks? +</WRAP>
-  * Can learning help to provide suitable representations from high-dimensional sensory data? +
-  +
-This workshop will bring together experts from the fields of tactile sensing, sensor design, manipulation, and machine learning. We expect that the pairing of theoretical and applied knowledge will lead to an interesting exchange of ideas and stimulate an open discussion about the goals and challenges of tactile sensing. +
