We present here an example of incremental learning between two computational models dealing with different modalities: a model allowing to switch spatial visual attention and a model allowing to learn the ordinal sequence of phonetical numbers. Their merging via a common reward signal allows anyway to produce a cardinal counting behaviour that can be implemented on a robot.
