    Recent research in cognitive psychology, neuro- science, and robotics has widely explored the tight relations between language and action systems in primates. However, the link between the pragmatics of linguistic and nonlinguistic inter- actions has received less attention up to now. In this paper, we argue that cognitive agents exploit the same cognitive processes and neural substrate-a general ... View full abstract»

  • Interactive Learning in Continuous Multimodal Space: A Bayesian Approach to Action-Based Soft Partitioning and Learning

    A probabilistic framework for interactive learning in continuous and multimodal perceptual spaces is proposed. In this framework, the agent learns the task along with adaptive partitioning of its multimodal perceptual space. The learning process is formulated in a Bayesian reinforcement learning setting to facilitate the adaptive partitioning. The partitioning is gradually and softly done using Ga... View full abstract»

    Researches in the brain science field have uncovered the human capability to use tools as if they are part of the human bodies (known as tool-body assimilation) through trial and experience. This paper presents a method to apply a robot's active sensing experience to create the tool-body assimilation model. The model is composed of a feature extraction module, dynamics learning module, and a tool-... View full abstract»

    We studied people's acceptance of robots that per- form tasks in a city. Three different beings (a human, a human wearing a mascot costume, and a robot) performed tasks in three different scenarios: endless guidance, responding to irrational complaints, and removing an accidentally discarded key from the trash. All of these tasks involved beings interacting with visitors in troublesome situations:... View full abstract»

  • Brain-Like Emergent Spatial Processing

    This is a theoretical, modeling, and algorithmic paper about the spatial aspect of brain-like information processing, modeled by the developmental network (DN) model. The new brain architecture allows the external environment (including teachers) to interact with the sensory ends and the motor ends of the skull-closed brain through development. It does not allow the human programmer to hand-pick e... View full abstract»
