’The strong support for the development of cognitive machines by the EC (under INFSO E5 – Cognition) will be reviewed, covering the main ideas of the 23 projects in this unit funded under FP6. The variety of approaches to cognition contained in these will be summarized, and future developments in FP7 considered. Conclusions on the future of the development of cognitive machine seen from this European perspective will conclude the paper.
