The “Poetics” of Everyday Life: Grounding Resources and Mechanisms for Artificial Agents
FP7 Project with U.S. partner

Information & communication technologies
Reproducing an act with sensorimotor means and using fine natural language for communicating the intentionality behind the act is what Aristotle called "Poetics". POETICON explores the "poetics of everyday life", i.e. the synthesis of sensorimotor representations and natural language in everyday human interaction. This is related to an old problem in Artificial Intelligence on how meaning emerges, which is approached here in a new way.
