Abstract : This paper reports preliminary research work on applying developmental learning to social robotics for making human-robot interactions more instinctive and more natural. Developmental learning is an unsupervised learning strategy relying on the fact that the learning agent is intrinsically motivated, and is able to incrementally build its own representation of the world through its experiences of interaction with it. Our claim is that using developmental learning in social robots could dramatically change the way we envision human-robot interaction, notably by giving the robot an active role in the interaction building process, and even more importantly, in the way it autonomously learns suitable behaviors over time. Developmental learning appears to be an appropriate approach to develop a form of "interactional intelligence" for social robots. In this work, our goal was to set up a common framework for implementing, experimenting and evaluating developmental learning algorithms with various social robots.
