CSRI Initiated Dialogue Column @ the 10th Anniversary of the IEEE CIS Newsletter on Autonomous Mental Development!

July 2014

This is the biannual newsletter of the computational developmental sciences and developmental robotics community, studying mechanisms of lifelong learning and development in machines and humans. It has progressively become a place of lively and inspiring scientific dialogues spanning an incredible network of topics over the years, with the contributions of many key actors of computational developmental sciences.

In the July 2014 issue, a CSRI initiated dialogue on the role of language in sensorymotor acquisition is hosted:
