Cognitive Robotics


Cognitive robotics is concerned with endowing robotic or software agents with human-like cognitive capabilities. By doing this, the agents and robots are enabled to achieve complex goals in complex environments. Robotic cognitive capabilities include perception processing, attention allocation, anticipation, planning, reasoning about other agents, and reasoning about their own mental states. Robotic cognition embodies the behaviour of intelligent agents in the physical world (or a virtual world, in the case of simulated cognitive robotics). Ultimately, this implies that the robot will also be able to act in this real world.





To make a robot that emotionally is more human-like, it should be capable of balancing simultaneously occurring tendencies of positive and negative affect. This double Ph.D. track shared between Communication Science (Social Sciences) and Artificial Intelligence (Sciences) - more
