Unsupervised Online Grounding of Natural Language during Human-Robot Interaction

Allowing humans to communicate through natural language with robots requires connections between words and percepts. The process of creating these connections is called symbol grounding and has been studied for nearly three decades. Although many …

Enhancing Unsupervised Language Grounding through Online Learning

To enable natural human-robot collaboration robots need to understand natural language, which in turn requires mechanisms to ground language by connecting words to corresponding percepts. This paper, presents an unsupervised online grounding …
