Cognitive robotics is a new approach to robot programming based on
high level primitives for perception and action. These primitives
draw inspiration from ideas in cognitive science, such as visual
routines, dual coding theory, and affordances. Students will
experiment with these primitives and help develop new ones using the
Tekkotsu software framework on the Sony AIBO robot dog. Prior
robotics experience is not necessary, but strong programming skills
