robot learning, embodiment, teaching by demonstration

We focus on robotic learning under multiple instructors. Even when their goal is the same, different instructors inevitably was different approaches. We propose incorporating DP matching and clustering, classifying the teaching demonstrations of instructors into groups of similar ones. Experiments in which an AIBO robot was taught to walk forward demonstrated that our proposal acquired appropriate teaching approaches based on AIBO’s different embodiments and maximizing task accomplishment.
