Robustness by Autonomous Competence Enhancement

Project description


Cognitive Systems and Robotics

The aim of RACE is to develop an artificial cognitive system, embodied by a service robot, able to build a high-level understanding of the world it inhabits by storing and exploiting appropriate memories of its experiences. In this way, experiences provide a detailed account of how the robot has achieved past goals or how it has failed, and what sensory events have accompanied the activities. RACE will demonstrate how a robot can evolve its understanding of the world as a result of novel experiences; and show how such understanding allows a robot to better cope with new situations and perform at a level of robustness and effectiveness not previously achievable, without the need of manually adapting its internal knowledge.
