THIRD INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON DEVELOPMENT AND LEARNING (ICDL2004) The Salk Institute October 20-23, 2004 San Diego, California http://icdl.cc The ICDL conference brings together leading researchers in neuroscience, machine learning, robotics, and developmental psychology. The goal is to gain new insights about learning and development in biological and artificial systems that have to operate autonomously in the physical and social world. Below is a summary of talks and conference activities. For more information please visit the conference Web Site at http://icdl.cc Wednesday October 20 Tutorials. Pietro Perona: Invited Talk.
