Cognitive Systems that Self-Understand and Self-Extend

Objective

Building robots capable to understand their own abilities and knowledge, and to choose which of their abilities or knowledge to extend at any time
CogX project builds what is missing for the development of cognitive systems able to work in open ended, challenging environments, dealing with novelty, uncertainty and change. Namely, how agents such as robots should understand their own abilities and knowledge (self-understanding), and choose which of their abilities or knowledge to extend at any one time (self-extension).
The high level aim of CogX is to develop a unified theory of self-understanding and self-extension with a convincing instantiation and implementation of this theory in a robot. This will require specific advances in the areas of mapping, language, and manipulation.
