Machine learning of visual object categorization: an application of the SUSTAIN model
(Cognitive Science Society, 2014-08-12)
Formal models of categorization are psychological theories that try to describe the process of categorization in a lawful way, using the language of mathematics. Their mathematical formulation makes it possible for the ...
Towards the Grounding of Abstract Words: A Neural Network Model for Cognitive Robots
In this paper, a model based on Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) extends the symbol grounding mechanism toabstract words for cognitive robots. The aim of this work is to obtain a semantic representation of abstract concepts ...
Generalisation, decision making, and embodiment effects in mental rotation: A neurorobotic architecture tested with a humanoid robot.
Mental rotation, a classic experimental paradigm of cognitive psychology, tests the capacity of humans to mentally rotate a seen object to decide if it matches a target object. In recent years, mental rotation has been ...
Novel hybrid adaptive controller for manipulation in complex perturbation environments.
In this paper we present a hybrid control scheme, combining the advantages of task-space and joint-space control. The controller is based on a human-like adaptive design, which minimises both control effort and tracking ...
Editorial: Language Development in the Digital Age
(Frontiers Media, 2017-09-05)
Spatial Language and Converseness.
Typical spatial language sentences consist of describing the location of an object (the located object) in relation to another object (the reference object) as in "The book is above the vase". While it has been suggested ...
Visual and linguistic cues to graspable objects.
Two experiments investigated (1) how activation of manual affordances is triggered by visual and linguistic cues to manipulable objects and (2) whether graspable object parts play a special role in this process. Participants ...
