Object recognition approaches can nowadays handle limited number of objects in artifical environments. But the approaches can not handle unknown objects even in simple environments. So the task is not only to recognize known objects, but to categorize unknown objects and to decide if it is already a known one or not. This is called generic object recognition. This discrimination is needed for robot commands like ``search for a specific object, which it learned before'', e.g. my cup, or ``look for a object of that kind'', e.g. a cup.
