Abstract : In this interview, Pierre-Yves Oudeyer outlines his perspective on the future of AI, and discusses directions for machines models of human-like intelligence. He explains how neuro-cognitive and evolutionary theories of human cognition should further inform artificial intelligence. He emphasizes the role of ecological niches in sculpting intelligent behavior, and in particular that human intelligence was fundamentally shaped to adapt to a constantly changing socio-cultural environment. He argues that a major limit of current work in AI is that it is missing this perspective, both theoretically and experimentally. Finally, he discusses the promising approach of developmental machine learning, modeling infant development through multi-scale interaction between intrinsically motivated learning, embodiment and a fastly changing socio-cultural environment.
