A Holistic Approach to Compositional Semantics: A Connectionist Model and Robot Experiments
We present a novel connectionist model for acquiring the semantics of a simple language through the behavioral experiences of a real robot. We focus on the “compositionality” ...

Real-time adaptation technique to real robots: an experiment with a humanoid robot
We introduce a technique that allows a real robot to execute real-time learning, in which GP and RL are integrated. In our former research, we showed the result of an experiment wi...
