The concept of affordances, as proposed by J.J. Gibson, refers to the relationship between the organism and its environment and has become popular in autonomous robot control. The learning of affordances in autonomous robots, however, typically requires a large set of training data obtained from the interactions of the robot with its environment. Therefore, the learning process is not only time-consuming, and costly but is also risky since some of the interactions may inflict damage on the… CONTINUE READING
