In this talk I will present our recent work about a humanoid robot that learns how to grasp objects with its three-fingered hand by accumulating experience about previous trials. The robot does not learn to grasp a particular object, but it learns strategies or more specifically how to select the most adequate "affordance". Its connection to current neuroscience knowledge will be presented together with further work on other service applications such as the UJI Librarian robot.
