Cognitive architecture aided by working-memory for self-supervised multi-modal humans recognition

  title={Cognitive architecture aided by working-memory for self-supervised multi-modal humans recognition},
  author={Jonas Gonzalez-Billandon and Giulia Belgiovine and Alessandra Sciutti and Giulio Sandini and Francesco Rea},
The ability to recognize human partners is an important social skill to build personalized and long-term human-robot interactions, especially in scenarios like education, care-giving, and rehabilitation. Faces and voices constitute two important sources of information to enable artificial systems to reliably recognize individuals. Deep learning networks have achieved state-of-the-art results and demonstrated to be suitable tools to address such a task. However, when those networks are applied…

Audiovisual cognitive architecture for autonomous learning of face localisation by a Humanoid Robot

A cognitive architecture to address autonomous learning from raw sensory signals without supervision and uses audiovisual attention and a proactive stereo vision mechanism to autonomously direct a robot's attentive focus towards human faces.

A working memory model improves cognitive control in agents and robots

Sensing the Partner: Toward Effective Robot Tutoring in Motor Skill Learning

It is highlighted that both physical behavior and affective signals could be integrated by an autonomous robot to generate adaptive and individualized assistance, mindful both of the learning process and the partner’s affective state.

Deep Episodic Memory: Encoding, Recalling, and Predicting Episodic Experiences for Robot Action Execution

A novel deep neural network architecture for representing robot experiences in an episodic-like memory that facilitates encoding, recalling, and predicting action experiences and shows that conceptually similar actions are mapped into the same region of the latent vector space.

Towards episodic memory-based long-term affective interaction with a human-like robot

This paper proposes a model of episodic memory and integrate it with a decision making module based on a Hierarchical Task Network (HTN) planner and presents a prototype implementation demonstrating the preliminary results.

Social Cognition for Human-Robot Symbiosis—Challenges and Building Blocks

This article reviews the challenges that must be met in the design of a set of interacting computational processes as building blocks of a cognitive architecture that may give symbiotic capabilities to collaborative robots of the next decades.

Affective Personalization of a Social Robot Tutor for Children's Second Language Skills

This integrated system of tablet-based educational content, Affective sensing, affective policy learning, and an autonomous social robot holds great promise for a more comprehensive approach to personalized tutoring.

The limits and potentials of deep learning for robotics

The need for better evaluation metrics is explained, the importance and unique challenges for deep robotic learning in simulation are highlighted, and the spectrum between purely data-driven and model-driven approaches is explored.

Episodic-Like Memory for Cognitive Robots

An approach to providing a cognitive robot with a long-term memory of experiences-a memory, inspired by the concept of episodic memory (in humans) or episodic-like memory ( in animals), respectively is presented.

A Systematic Review of Adaptivity in Human-Robot Interaction

A systematic review on the reported adaptive interactions across a number of domain areas during Human-Robot Interaction is presented and future directions that can guide the design of future adaptive social robots are given.
