The CoSy project was setup under the assumption that the visionary FP6 objective
“To construct physically instantiated ... systems that can perceive, understand ... and interact with their environment, and evolve in order to achieve human-like performance in activities requiring context-(situation and task) specific knowledge”
is far beyond the state of the art and will remain so for many years. From this vision several intermediate targets were defined. Achieving these targets would provide a launch pad for further work on the long term vision.
