Learning by Exploring and Playing

What motivates children to learn? Exploring and playing? Can the same motivation be used to teach a robot to communicate? "To experience optimal learning progress, it must avoid situations already familiar but also situations where nothing can be learned" In other words getting bored and frustrated are crucial to the learning process too. Pierre-Yves Oudeyer of the Sony's Computer Science Lab in Paris explores these ideas in his new paper, Discovering Communication. This is related to Oudeyer's Intelligent Adaptive Curiousity work and his theories on the self-organization of language, which we've reported on in the past.

Yes excellent research,i beleive you just need to make robots of the future get bored and restless naturally through their cpu being programmed to get confused when not much new activities,then the desire for a lot of learning flows from that feeling of confusion.
