Detecting the functional similarities between tools using a hierarchical representation of outcomes


The ability to reason about multiple tools and their functional similarities is a prerequisite for intelligent tool use. This paper presents a model which allows a robot to detect the similarity between tools based on the environmental outcomes observed with each tool. To do this, the robot incrementally learns an adaptive hierarchical representation (i.e… (More)
