Message from Technical Committee on Cognitive and Developmental Systems Chair
I am honoured to have been appointed to the role of Chair of the IEEE CIS Technical committee on Cognitive and Developmental Systems for 2017. This year the technical committee on cognitive and developmental systems has added two new research goals for our technical committee:
Building machines capable of life-long adaptation and interaction with the physical and social world (existing goal).
Building machines that can model and recognise cognitive characteristics relevant to development in their human collaborators, and act accordingly to assist human activities (new goal).
Using machines as tools to better understand human and animal development and cognition (existing goal).
Using machines to support human learning and development (new goal).
In pursuit of these goals, this year members of our community have contributed to recent events in human-robot interaction, designing for curiosity and evolution in cognition. It is exciting to see the ongoing efforts of members of our community.
