From Animals to Animats 11: 11th International Conference on by Michael A. Arbib (auth.), Stéphane Doncieux, Benoît Girard,

By Michael A. Arbib (auth.), Stéphane Doncieux, Benoît Girard, Agnès Guillot, John Hallam, Jean-Arcady Meyer, Jean-Baptiste Mouret (eds.)

This quantity constitutes the refereed court cases of the eleventh foreign convention on Simulation and Adaptive habit, SAB 2010, held in Paris and Clos Lucé, France, in August 2010. The articles disguise all major parts in animat study, together with notion and motor regulate, motion choice, motivation and emotion, inner types and illustration, collective habit, language evolution, evolution and studying. The authors specialise in well-defined types, machine simulations or robot types, that support to signify and examine a variety of organizational rules, architectures, and variation approaches able to inducing adaptive habit in actual animals or artificial brokers, the animats.

Divine Machines: Leibniz and the Sciences of Life

Although it didn't but exist as a discrete box of clinical inquiry, biology was once on the middle of some of the most crucial debates in seventeenth-century philosophy. Nowhere is that this extra obvious than within the paintings of G. W. Leibniz. In Divine Machines , Justin Smith deals the 1st in-depth exam of Leibniz's deep and complicated engagement with the empirical existence sciences of his day, in components as diversified as drugs, body structure, taxonomy, iteration thought, and paleontology.

But there are many things to try. Acknowledgements. A lecture at the University of Birmingham by Joe Cain on 13th October 2009 drew my attention to the extent and importance of scientific puzzlement regarding evolution of mental functions even among supporters of Darwin. I owe thanks to many colleagues, over many years, including Jeremy Wyatt and other members of the EU CogX Cognitive Robotics project.

Evolution produced widely varying physical structures, and also myriad behavioural capabilities and internal information-processing capabilities, with different subsets of capabilities shared between different species. Even humans differ widely. g. new-born infants appear to be unable to perceive, think about, or communicate about most of the things older humans can, and some older humans are also limited in their mental capacities by effects of genetic abnormality, injury, disease, or degeneration.

It was a desire to better understand how multiple sources of information interact over time to produce this behavior that first led us to the information-theoretic approach described here. 3 Overview of Information Dynamics The central idea of our information dynamics approach is to explore how information about particular stimulus features flows through a brain-body-environment system. For example, in our analysis of the relational agent, the stimulus features that we consider are the sizes of the first and second objects presented to the agent.
