Learning to grasp with parental scaffolding
Parental scaffolding is an important mechanism utilized by infants during their development. Infants, for example, pay stronger attention to the features of objects highlighted by parents and learn the way of manipulating ...
Affordance-based altruistic robotic architecture for human–robot collaboration
This article proposes a computational model for altruistic behavior, shows its implementation on a physical robot, and presents the results of human-robot interaction experiments conducted with the implemented system. ...
Staged development of robot skills: behavior formation, affordance learning and imitation
Inspired by infant development, we propose a three staged developmental framework for an anthropomorphic robot manipulator. In the first stage, the robot is initialized with a basic reach-and- enclose-on-contact movement ...
Parental scaffolding as a bootstrapping mechanism for learning grasp affordances and imitation skills
(Cambridge University Press, 2015-06)
Parental scaffolding is an important mechanism that speeds up infant sensorimotor development. Infants pay stronger attention to the features of the objects highlighted by parents, and their manipulation skills develop ...
Effect regulated projection of robot’s action space for production and prediction of manipulation primitives through learning progress and predictability based exploration
In this study, we propose an effective action parameter exploration mechanism that enables efficient discovery of robot actions through interacting with objects in a simulated table-top environment. For this, the robot ...
Modeling the development of infant imitation using inverse reinforcement learning
Little is known about the computational mechanisms of how imitation skills develop along with infant sensorimotor learning. In robotics, there are several well developed frameworks for imitation learning or so called ...
