This paper proposes formative plans for the concept of a framework called VIOLA (Virbots for Independent Online Living Applications) with the potential to integrate an artificial cognitive system (ACS) with real and virtual worlds. The aim is to endow a robot with advanced perception, action and social interaction capabilities, achieved through translating learning and social interaction techniques currently utilised only in virtual worlds, to real world systems. The framework would aspire to enhance human-robotic interaction through the application of accelerated virtual learning outcomes to real-world social interactions and scenarios. A home-based implementation of this framework may demonstrate the capabilities of the concept to illustrate a socially aware cognitive system simultaneously driving and learning from multiple virtual robots (Virbots), and robots, on both functional and social levels.
