Talk: Learning how to point
Learning how to point
Pointing gestures are important in communication, for instance to "point out" the object of discussion. To successfully point with one's hand at objects in the environment, a precise visuo-motor coordination is crucial. We present a system for teaching the humanoid robot iCub how to point in physical human-robot interaction. Different approaches to model and solve the problem of visuo-motor coordination for pointing are discussed and compared.
