As you say, one of the major thrusts now is to get the robot to model not just itself, but its immediate surroundings. We're also pursuing the idea of having a group of robots work together to model themselves (http://www.cs.uvm.edu/~jbongard/papers/2007_GECCO _Bongard2.pdf). You raise a good point about motivation. As far as I know, this is an open question in AI: how can you build a robot that will develop its own motivations?

You don't have to know how the computer works, just how to work the computer.
