Task Instantiation from Life-long Memories of Mobile Robots

Part 2: In his second lecture, Kei Okada discusses episodic memory. It describes the collection of past personal experiences in comparison to semantic memory that refers to the general knowledge about the world humans accumulate throughout their life. In order to achieve a goal like tidying up objects, a robot has to rely on acquired knowledge about where to find objects and what to do with them. In a very educational way, Kei Okada further addresses the concepts of task instantiation and experience accumulation mechanism, meaning the formation of patterns and routines in task completion.
