Teaching a robot toddler

I-cub, a project run in Eurpoe with participation from many Universities across the continent, is one of the most popular robot platforms in the world. The robot is taught how to recognize objects where the system is based on how young children learn. This brings the physcology, cogintive science and robotics field together. I-Cub learns the positions of the objects by correlating them to its body position and then it can predict where the object is going to be. For more and to see a video, see link below.
