The scope of mental development includes cognitive, behavioral, emotional, and all other mental capabilities that are exhibited by humans, higher animals, and artificial systems. Computational principles of autonomous mental development in humans and the synthesis of developmental programs for robots and other artificial systems are beginning to be actively studied. Robots that develop their mental skills autonomously represent a fundamental change from the traditional paradigm for constructing… Expand
