Space as an Invention of Active Agents

Alexander V. Terekhov, J. Kevin O'Regan
2016 Frontiers in Robotics and AI  
Rigid displacements may underly perception of space as an unchanging medium within which objects are described by their relative positions.  ...  Here, we show that this does not have to be the case: the notion of space could emerge when biological organisms seek an economic representation of their sensorimotor flow.  ...  Le Clec'H for fruitful discussions and suggestions improving the quality of the manuscript.  ...

Computational Evidence that Self-regulation of Creativity is Good for Society [article]

Liane Gabora, Simon Tseng
2014 arXiv   pre-print
We tested this using an agent-based model of cultural evolution in which each agent self-regulated its invention-to-imitation ratio as a function of the fitness of its cultural outputs.  ...  In self-regulating societies, agents segregated into creators and imitators.  ...  Acknowledgments This work was supported by grants from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and the Flemish Fund for Scientific Research, Belgium.  ...

The social benefits of balancing creativity and imitation: Evidence from an agent-based model

Liane Gabora, Simon Tseng
2017 Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity, and the Arts  
Using an agent-based model of cultural evolution, we investigated the idea that tempering the novelty-generating effects of creativity with the novelty-preserving effects of imitation is beneficial for  ...  In Experiment Three we made the space of possible outputs open-ended by giving agents the capacity to chain simple outputs into arbitrarily complex ones such that fitter outputs were always possible.  ...  The diversity, or number of different ideas, exhibited an increase as the space of possibilities was explored followed by a decrease as agents converged on fit actions, as shown in Figure 7 .  ...
