Recently, an intelligent robot is expected to operate our living area. To realize, a robot should make a decision for action from a simple order by human. For decision making of a robot, it is important that a perception of environmental situation and adaptation to the preference of a person. We have proposed the learning method based on SOM to adapt environmental situation and the preference of human. Through experiments by simulation, we verified that the proposed method can consider the changing of attribution by time variation. And, the decision making of a robot can be adapted to the preference of a person through interaction with a person.
