A Robot Waiter Learning from Experiences [chapter]

Bernd Neumann, Lothar Hotz, Pascal Rost, Jos Lehmann
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this contribution, we consider learning tasks of a robot simulating a waiter in a restaurant.  ...  Experiments are based on work in Project RACE 3 where a PR2 robot is employed for recording experiences, learning and applying the learnt concepts.  ...  Learning will be based on experiences recorded by the robot and, at times, instructions by a human instructor. Examples are taken from the restaurant domain with a robot performing as a waiter.  ...

Learning Higher-Order Programs through Predicate Invention

Andrew Cropper, Rolf Morel, Stephen H. Muggleton
Our experiments show that, compared to first-order programs, learning higher-order programs can significantly improve predictive accuracies and reduce learning times.  ...  A key feature of inductive logic programming (ILP) is its ability to learn first-order programs, which are intrinsically more expressive than propositional programs.  ...  Robot Waiter This experiment focuses on learning a general robot waiter strategy (Cropper and Muggleton 2015) from a set of examples, where the goal is to serve drinks at a table.  ...

A Robot Waiter that Predicts Events by High-level Scene Interpretation

Jos Lehmann, Bernd Neumann, Wilfried Bohlken, Lothar Hotz
2014 Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence  
As a guiding example, we consider a robot acting as a waiter in a restaurant and the task of predicting possible occurrences and courses of action, e.g. when serving a coffee to a guest.  ...  Being able to predict events and occurrences which may arise from a current situation is a desirable capability of an intelligent agent.  ...  As work in RACE progresses, we expect that the robot will be able to learn models from experiences.  ...
