Developmental Visual Agents (DVA) are intelligent agents aimed at learning to see like children. They are thought of as general-purpose systems capable of continuously processing video information, according to the never-ending learning philosophy, and they are designed for interacting with users, which provide them supervisions on the objects in the scene. DVA are organized in a hierarchical architecture, which first extracts scale- and rotation-invariant features at the bottom levels, and then processes such features in order to identify regions and recognize objects according to the framework of Support Constraint Machines.
