Teach a robot about a physical space by interacting with it in much the same way we'd interact with a new lab member or coworker. Walk the robot around the space and verbally describe the surroundings and features. The robot would then be able to localize itself and navigate within the environment using the verbal cues as well as with a geometric model of the space. Having once told the robot, "this is my office, and here's my desk", we'd one day be able to say "bring me the book on my desk" and have it be done.
