The ITALK project aims to develop artificial embodied agents able to acquire complex behavioural, cognitive, and linguistic skills through individual and social learning. This will be achieved through experiments with the iCub robot to learn to manipulate objects and tools autonomously, and learn to communicate with other robots and humans, and to adapt to changing internal, environmental, and social conditions. The project will lead to the development of: • new theoretical insights, models and scientific explanations of the integration of action, social and linguistic skills to bootstrap cognitive development • new interdisciplinary sets of methods for analysing the interaction of language, action and cognition in humans and artificial cognitive agents • new cognitively-plausible engineering principles and approaches for the design of robots with behavioural, cognitive, social and linguistic skills • robotic experiments on object manipulation and language with the iCub robot.
