Cognitive Developmental Robotics: yesterday, today, and tomorrow
Cognitive Developmental Robotics aims at understating human's cognitive developmental process based on the constructive approaches utilizing robots as a tool or computer simulations. In this talk, I review the approaches in Cognitive Developmental Robotics (yesterday), and introduce the current topics of computational neuroscience (today), and discuss about future social issues (tomorrow).
