Motor Learning by Imitation

Maja J. Mataric

This paper describes a research project with the goal of modeling the process of learning new behaviors through imitation. The main motivation for studying imitation is the complexity of the task: it mandates a real-time integration of vision, proprioception, representation, motor control, and learning. We are working on a biologically-plausible model of imitation, constrained by current data from neuroscience, and aided by current simulation, robotics, and machine learning techniques.
