Description

Endowing robots with cognition is a long-standing and difficult objective. Substantial progress in cognitive science and neuroscience has led to the insight that cognition is tightly linked to the sensory and motor surfaces, and that cognition emerges during development from relatively low-level mechanisms when situated in a structured environment. Building on basic functions such as detection and selection, <a href="http://www.neuraldynamics.eu/" target="_blank">NeuralDynamics</a> will develop a set of elements of cognition and techniques for combining such elements, allowing to scale towards such cognitive capabilities as scene representation and sequence generation. The project will implement and evaluate these elements of cognition in scenarios inspired by the development of cognition in early childhood.
