Hierarchical action learning by instruction through interactive grounding of body parts and proto-actions

Maxime Petit, Yiannis Demiris
2016 2016 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA)  
The direct grounding of protoactions is possible through the use of a linear model which calculates the effects on the joint of the proto-action and the body part used, allowing a generalisation of the  ...  Eventually, transferring the grounding is allowed via learning by instructions where humans can combine the newly acquired proto-actions to build primitives and more complex actions by scaffolding them  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENT This research was funded in part by the EU projects WYSIWYD (grant FP7-ICT-612139) and PAL (grant H2020-PHC-643783).  ...

Grounding Neural Robot Language in Action [chapter]

Stefan Wermter, Cornelius Weber, Mark Elshaw, Vittorio Gallese, Friedemann Pulvermüller
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we describe two models for neural grounding of robotic language processing in actions.  ...  These models are inspired by concepts of the mirror neuron system in order to produce learning by imitation by combining high-level vision, language and motor command inputs.  ...  This work is part of the MirrorBot project supported by the EU in the FET-IST programme under grant IST-2001-35282.  ...

Grounding language in action and perception: From cognitive agents to humanoid robots

Angelo Cangelosi
2010 Physics of Life Reviews  
Grounding language in action and perception: From cognitive agents to humanoid robots.  ...  In this review we concentrate on a grounded approach to the modeling of cognition through the methodologies of cognitive agents and developmental robotics.  ...  The agent undergoes 3 stages of training: (1) Basic action learning, (2) Entrylevel naming through direct grounding, and (3) Higher-order learning through grounding transfer.  ...

Homo inventans: The evolution of narrativity

Lynda D. McNeil
1996 Language & Communication  
The fine details of processing Galium appear to be learned observationally by impersonation of some of the detailed actions like leaf folding.  ...  Learning the technique seems to resemble the process of learning a script which is grounded in prior schematization of perceptual experience.  ...

Stone toolmaking and the evolution of human culture and cognition

D. Stout
2011 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Biological Sciences  
Is this extraordinary complexity a product of cognitive evolution, cultural evolution or some interaction of the two?  ...  Cognitive evolution and the greater latitude for cultural variation afforded by increasingly complex technologies may play complementary roles in explaining this pattern.  ...  Early hierarchical analyses of stone toolmaking action sequences were developed by Holloway [27] and Gowlett [28] .  ...

Role of expressive behaviour for robots that learn from people

C. Breazeal
2009 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Biological Sciences  
Many of these activities shall require robots to learn new tasks, skills and individual preferences while 'on the job' from people with little expertise in the underlying technology.  ...  Robotics has traditionally focused on developing intelligent machines that can manipulate and interact with objects.  ...  (iv) Summary: joint action While more established approaches to instructing robots view the interaction as a one-way flow of information from human to machine, this body of work challenges the paradigm  ...

Michael A. Arbib
2008 Journal of Physiology - Paris  
From monkey-like action recognition to human language: an evolutionary framework for neurolinguistics (with commentaries and author's response).  ...  The discovery of mirror neurons in the macaque monkey and the discovery of a homologous "mirror system for grasping" in Broca's area in the human brain has revived the gestural origins theory of the evolution  ...  Nonetheless, I argue that protolanguage and language emerged through the invention of an increasingly subtle interweaving of (proto)words and (proto)constructions.  ...
