The project addresses four fundamental challenges, led by four partners:
- How can a robot learn efficient perceptual representations of its body and of external objects given initially only low-level perceptual capabilities?
Challenge leader : ENSTA-ParisTech (Paris).
- How can a robot learn motor representations and use them to build basic affordant reaching and manipulation skills?
Challenge leader : ISIR-UPMC-Paris 6 (Paris). ISIR hosts the iCub humanoid robot on which the achievements will be evaluated.
- What guidance heuristics should be used to explore vast sensorimotor spaces in unknown changing bodies and environments?
Challenge leader : FLOWERS team at INRIA Bordeaux (Bordeaux).
- How can mechanisms for building efficient representations/abstractions, mechanisms for learning manipulation skills, and guidance mechanisms be integrated in the same experimental robotic architecture and reused for different robots?
Challenge leader : GOSTAI company (Paris).
