title = "Learning elements of representations for redescribing robot experiences",

abstract = "This paper presents our first efforts toward learning simple logical representations from robot sensory data and thus toward a solution for the perceptual grounding problem [2]. The elements of representations learned by our method are states that correspond to stages during the robot{\textquoteright}s experiences, and atomic propositions that describe the states. The states are found by an incremental hidden Markov model induction algorithm; the atomic propositions are immediate generalizations of the probability distributions that characterize the states. The state induction algorithm is guided by the minimum description length criterion: the time series of the robot{\textquoteright}s sensor values for several experiences are redescribed in terms of states and atomic propositions and the model that yields the shortest description (of both model and time series) is selected.",
