Abstract: The ability to learn new concepts is essential for any robot to be successful in real-world applications. This is due to the fact that it is impractical for a robot designer to pre-endow it with all the concepts that it would encounter during its operational lifetime. In this context, it becomes necessary that the robot is able to acquire new concepts, in a real-world context, from cues provided in natural, unconstrained interactions, similar to a human-teaching approach. However, existing approaches on concept learning from visual images and abstract concept learning address this problem in a manner that makes them unsuitable for learning in an embodied, real-world environment. This paper presents a developmental approach to concept learning. The proposed system learns abstract, generic features of objects and associates words from sentences referring to those objects with the features, thus providing a grounding for the meaning of the words. The method thus allows the system to late r identify such features in previously unseen images. The paper presents results obtained on data acquired with a Kinect camera and on synthetic images.
