Web-enabled and Experience-based Cognitive Robots that Learn Complex Everyday Manipulation Tasks

Project description

Cognitive Systems and Robotics In order to make robots achieve robust, adaptive, effective and natural performance of everyday manipulation tasks, it is not feasible to expect that programmers can equip the robots with plan libraries that cover such open-ended task spectrum competently. ROBOHOW.Cog targets at enabling autonomous robots to perform expanding sets of human-scale tasks - both in human working and living environments. To this end, RoboHow.Cog will investigate a new approach to robot programming and control where knowledge for accomplishing tasks is semi-automatically acquired from instructions in the World Wide Web, from human instruction and from demonstration.
