We have been advocating cognitive developmental robotics that aims at understanding human’s cognitive developmental process and acquiring a new insight into the design for symbiotic robots by synthetic or constructive approaches. Its core idea is “physical embodiment,” and “social interaction” that enables information structuring through interactions with the environment including other agents, and behavior emergence.
