Cognitive developmental robotics (CDR) aims to provide new understanding of how human's higher cognitive functions develop by means of a synthetic approach that developmentally constructs cognitive functions. The core idea of CDR is ldquophysical embodimentrdquo that enables information structuring through interactions with the environment, including other agents. The idea is shaped based on the hypothesized development model of human cognitive functions from body representation to social… Expand

Mechanism for Cognitive Development
TLDR
This chapter describes computational approaches to a new understanding of the mechanisms of cognitive development and case studies in cognitive developmental robotics are presented: a computational model for the emergence of the mirror neuron system, a developmental mechanism for joint attention, and an analysis of the dynamical information flow in infant-caregiver interaction.

Artificial Mental Imagery in Cognitive Robots Interaction
TLDR
This article reviews the recent literature that exploit of the concept of mental imagery as a fundamental cognitive capability to enhance the robot's ability to interact with the physical and social environment and identifies three future interdisciplinary research directions. Expand
Social Development of Artificial Cognition
TLDR
This chapter gives three examples of how humanoid robots are used to unveil aspects of development, and how to use development and learning to build better robots, and argues that Spiking Neural Networks offer great potential for the implementation of artificial cognition on robots. Expand

Cognitive developmental robotics as a new paradigm for the design of humanoid robots
TLDR
CDR may provide ways of understanding human beings that go beyond the current level of explanation found in the natural and social sciences and hold promise because they have many degrees of freedom and sense modalities and must face the challenges of scalability that are often side- stepped in simpler domains.

Autonomous Mental Development by Robots and Animals
The scope of mental development includes cognitive, behavioral, emotional, and all other mental capabilities that are exhibited by humans, higher animals, and artificial systems. ComputationalExpand
RobotCub: an open framework for research in embodied cognition
TLDR
A research initiative in embodied cognition that will create and exploit a 54 degree-of-freedom humanoid robot that is currently being designed and the final system will be made freely available to the scientific community through an open systems GNU-like general public license. Expand
Developmental robotics: a survey
TLDR
This paper elucidates the main reasons and key motivations behind the convergence of fields with seemingly disparate interests, and shows why developmental robotics might prove to be beneficial for all fields involved. Expand
Exploring the world through grasping: a developmental approach
TLDR
The implementation of grasping skills in a humanoid robot with a developmental approach and the implications of this approach to the study of cognition and the effort to build a cognitive artificial system are discussed. Expand
Emergence and development of embodied cognition: a constructivist approach using robots.
TLDR
It is shown that a mere physical body, when driven toward some task goal, provides a clear information structure, for action execution and perception, and "embodiment as a coupled chaotic field" is proposed, with experiments showing emergent and adaptive behavior. Expand

Learning for joint attention helped by functional development
TLDR
Experiments reveal that the adaptive evaluation by the caregiver accelerates the robot's learning and that the visual development in the robot improves the accuracy of joint attention tasks due to its well-structured visuomotor mapping. Expand
