Abstract

What could a robot learn in one day? This paper describes the DayOne project, an endeavor to build an epigenetic robot that can bootstrap from a very rudimentary state to relatively sophisticated perception of objects and activities in a matter of hours. The project is inspired by the astonishingly rapidity with which many animals such as foals and lambs adapt to their surroundings on the first day of their life. While such plasticity may not be a sufficient basis for long-term cognitive development, it may be at least necessary, and share underlying infrastructure. This paper suggests that a sufficiently flexible perceptual system begins to look and act like it contains cognitive structures.
