We, as highly cognitive animals, seamlessly recognize and use objects, or concepts, and their affordances.

In this talk, I will present our recent efforts on integrating all these crucial capabilities together into a framework which links contextualized concepts and affordances together and allows using them for various robotic settings in different contexts.
