Explorations on artificial time perception

Michail Maniadakis, Panos Trahanias, Jun Tani
2009 Neural Networks  
In the field of biologically inspired cognitive systems, time perception, a fundamental aspect of natural cognition is not sufficiently explored.  ...  The obtained results are related with previous brain imaging studies on time perception, and they are used to formulate suggestions for the cortical representation of time in biological agents.  ...  The current study is a first attempt towards a rigorous and systematic exploration of the time perception capacity of cognitive agents.  ...

Exploring Uncertainty and Movement in Categorical Perception Using Robots [chapter]

Nathaniel Powell, Josh Bongard
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Cognitive agents are able to perform categorical perception through physical interaction (active categorical perception; ACP), or passively at a distance (distal categorical perception; DCP).  ...  Here we demonstrate a method for doing so which involves uncertainty: robots are trained to perform ACP when uncertain and DCP when certain.  ...  This work was supported by the National Science Foundation under projects PECASE-0953837 and INSPIRE-1344227.  ...

2017 Autonomous Robots  
Despite the recent successes in robotics, artificial intelligence and computer vision, a complete artificial agent necessarily must include active perception.  ...  We argue that those contributions are as relevant today as they were decades ago and, with the state of modern computational tools, are poised to find new life in the robotic perception systems of the  ...  Active Perception systems attempt to deal with the perceptual-motor loop of a robot in a real environment, rejecting simulated worlds.  ...
