grounded language acquisition
For robots deployed in human-centric spaces, natural language promises an intuitive, natural interface. However, obtaining appropriate training data for grounded language in a variety of settings is a significant barrier. In this work, we describe using human-robot interactions in virtual reality to train a robot, combining fully simulated sensing and actuation with human interaction. We present the architecture of our simulator and our grounded language learning approach, then describe our intended initial experiments.
