Robots Exploring with Curiosity

    Hello !

    I'm a last year PhD student, currently writing my thesis, at INRIA Bordeaux under the supervision of Pierre-Yves Oudeyer.

Research interests:

My topics of interests include developmental psychology and developmental robotics:  we try to create curious robots that learn like children, both to inform, make hypothesis and predictions on children learning mechanisms, and to come up with robots better able to learn in complex child-like environments. In particular, we are interested in the development of tool-use and vocal skills and we implement curiosity-driven learning mechanisms for robots to develop those skills.

On this website you will find videos and publications about those projects.



I wrote a tutorial on exploration algorithms, with comparisons of several concepts (Motor Babbling, Goal Babbling, Model Babbling). This Jupyter notebook can either be read-only, or tested interactively (so that you can study new parameters) if you download the Github repository and run the notebook with Jupyter.
