Robots need Language: A computational mechanism for generalisation and generation of new behaviours in robots (POETICON++)
Start date: Jan 1, 2012, End date: Dec 31, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Description Handling novel situations beyond learned schemas or set behaviours is still a quest in engineering cognitive and embodied systems. Powerful generalisation mechanisms are necessary for any agent to operate effectively in real-world environments. POETICON++ suggests that natural language can be used as a learning tool for generalisation of learned behaviours & perceptual experiences and generation of new behaviours & experiences (creativity). The main objective of POETICON++ is the development of a computational mechanism for such generalisation of motor programs and visual experiences for robots. To this end, it will integrate natural language and visual action/object recognition tools with motor skills and learning abilities.
