I am interested in the mechanisms that allow humans and robots to develop perceptual, motivational, behavioral and social capabilities to become capable of sharing cultural representations and of natural embodied interaction.
In particular, I use robots to study how new linguistic conventions can be established in a society of individuals. There is a double objective: 1) contributing to the understanding of the origins of language (see my book), 2) developing new technological approaches for building intelligent sociable robots. This is concretized through my work in developmental robotics, also called epigenetic robotics, in which I have developed artificial curiosity systems as well as biologically inspired methods of human-robot interaction.
