The interdisciplinary team of researchers aims to to develop novel learning algorithms based on the theory of childlike curiosity.

An international team of scientists at the Max Planck Institutes (MPI) for Intelligent Systems and for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen, as well as at the MPI for Educational Research in Berlin, is receiving funding from the Volkswagen Foundation to develop novel learning algorithms based on the theory of childlike curiosity. The team aims to translate curiosity and interest into program code that promotes self-motivated learning behavior in robotic systems.
