    We address self-perception in robots as the key for world understanding and causality interpretation. We present a self-perception mechanism that enables a humanoid robot to understand certain sensory changes caused by naive actions during interaction with objects. Visual, proprioceptive and tactile cues are combined via artificial attention and probabilistic reasoning to permit the robot to disce... View full abstract»

    Internal models play a key role in cognitive agents by providing on the one hand predictions of sensory consequences of motor commands (forward models), and on the other hand inverse mappings (inverse models) to realize tasks involving control loops, such as imitation tasks. The ability to predict and generate new actions in continuously evolving environments intrinsically requiring the use of dif... View full abstract»

  • Perception of Localized Features During Robotic Sensorimotor Development

    The understanding of concepts related to objects are developed over a long period of time in infancy. This paper investigates how physical constraints and changes in visual perception impact on both sensorimotor development for gaze control, as well as the perception of features of interesting regions in the scene. Through a progressive series of developmental stages, simulating ten months of infa... View full abstract»

  • Building a Sensorimotor Representation of a Naive Agent’s Tactile Space

    A new approach for robotics perception, rooted in the sensorimotor paradigm, is proposed in this paper. Making systems able to autonomously adapt themselves to changes in their own body or in their environment is still a challenging question for many different scientific communities. Multiple works propose either sophisticated adaptive model-based or learning-based techniques as a solution. Recent... View full abstract»

  • A Multimodal Model of Object Deformation Under Robotic Pushing

    In this paper, we present a multimodal framework for offline learning of generative models of object deformation under robotic pushing. The model is multimodal in that it is based on integrating force and visual information. The framework consists of several submodels that are independently calibrated from the same data. These component models can be sequenced to provide many-step prediction and c... View full abstract»

  • Analysis of Cognitive Dissonance and Overload through Ability-Demand Gap Models

    Maintaining alternative decisions in working memory (WM) can lead to accumulating high cognitive load. Some aspects of cognitive load improve attentiveness, but adding a cognitively inconsistent (conflict) situation results in a failure in cognitive task performance. This research introduces the notion of the human ability-demand gap (discrepancy between human cognitive ability and task performanc... View full abstract»

  • Constructing a Language From Scratch: Combining Bottom–Up and Top–Down Learning Processes in a Computational Model of Language Acquisition

    We present a computational model that allows us to study the interplay of different processes involved in first language acquisition. We build on the assumption that language acquisition is usage-driven and assume that there are different processes in language acquisition operating at different levels. Bottom-up processing allows a learner to identify regularities in the linguistic input received,... View full abstract»

  • Behavior-Based SSVEP Hierarchical Architecture for Telepresence Control of Humanoid Robot to Achieve Full-Body Movement

    The challenge to telepresence control a humanoid robot through a steady-state visual evoked potential (SSVEP) based model is to rapidly and accurately control full-body movement of the robot because a subject has to synchronously recognize the complex natural environments based on live video feedback and activate the proper mental states by targeting the visual stimuli. To mitigate this problem, t... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

The IEEE Transactions on Cognitive and Developmental Systems (TCDS) focuses on advances in the study of development and cognition in natural (humans, animals) and artificial (robots, agents) systems. It welcomes contributions from multiple related disciplines including cognitive systems, cognitive robotics, developmental and epigenetic robotics, autonomous and evolutionary robotics, social structures, multi-agent and artificial life systems, computational neuroscience, and developmental psychology. Articles on theoretical, computational, application-oriented, and experimental studies as well as reviews in these areas are considered.
