The Umwelt of an embodied agent—a measure-theoretic definition

Nihat Ay, Wolfgang Löhr
2015 Theory in biosciences  
We consider a general model of the sensorimotor loop of an agent interacting with the world. This formalises Uexküll's notion of a function-circle.  ...  In this generality, we define two σ-algebras of events in the world that describe two respective perspectives: (1) the perspective of an external observer, (2) the intrinsic perspective of the agent.  ...  The authors would like to thank Jürgen Jost for his helpful comments.  ...

Quantifying Morphological Computation based on an Information Decomposition of the Sensorimotor Loop [article]

Keyan Ghazi-Zahedi, Johannes Rauh
2015 arXiv   pre-print
The question how an agent is affected by its embodiment has attracted growing attention in recent years.  ...  In numerical simulation based on a formal representation of the sensorimotor loop, we show that the unique information of the body and environment is a good measure for morphological computation.  ...  Acknowledgements This work was partly funded by Priority Program Autonomous Learning (DFG-SPP 1527) of the German Research Foundation (DFG).  ...

How Radical Is Embodied Creativity? Implications of 4E Approaches for Creativity Research and Teaching

Laura H. Malinin
2019 Frontiers in Psychology  
With creativity research in crisis due to conceptual, methodological, and theoretical issues, radical embodied cognitive science (RECS) may offer a framework to move the field forward.  ...  Modern ideas of embodiment have been influential in cognitive science for the past several decades, yet there is minimal evidence of embodied cognition approaches in creativity research or pedagogical  ...  For the purpose of this conceptual analysis, creativity is defined as an iterative process that involves (a) identifying a problem or area of 1 von Uexküll (1926/2010) described umwelt as the "surrounding  ...

Linear combination of one-step predictive information with an external reward in an episodic policy gradient setting: a critical analysis

Keyan Zahedi, Georg Martius, Nihat Ay
2013 Frontiers in Psychology  
Only for hard tasks a great speed-up can be achieved at the cost of an asymptotic performance lost.  ...  One of the main challenges in the field of embodied artificial intelligence is the open-ended autonomous learning of complex behaviors.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This work was funded by the German Priority Program Autonomous Learning (DFG-SPP 1527). We would like to thank the reviewers for their very helpful comments.  ...

From embodied to socially embedded agents – Implications for interaction-aware robots

Kerstin Dautenhahn, Bernard Ogden, Tom Quick
2002 Cognitive Systems Research  
First, this article proposes a minimal definition of embodiment that can be applied across animals and artefacts.  ...  We discuss the potential contributions of this operational definition with respect to assessing and measuring the degree of embodiment in different biological and artificial systems.  ...  According to this definition 2 .1. A minimal definition of embodiment any physical robot or simulated agent is embodied, regardless of the environment it is located in.  ...

Radical embodiment in two directions

Edward Baggs, Anthony Chemero
2018 Synthese  
There are currently two main flavors of radical (i.e., nonrepresentational) embodied cognitive science.  ...  Radical embodied cognitive science is split into two camps: the ecological approach and the enactive approach.  ...  , and reproduction in any medium, provided you give appropriate credit to the original author(s) and the source, provide a link to the Creative Commons license, and indicate if changes were made.  ...

Learning and knowing as semiosis: Extending the conceptual apparatus of semiotics

Cary Campbell, Alin Olteanu, Kalevi Kull
2020 Sign Systems Studies  
We observe an opportunity to advance the state-of-the-art in semiotics by defining concepts of cognitive processes and phenomena via semiotic terms.  ...  For these, we provide preliminary definitions from a semiotic perspective, which also explicates their interrelatedness.  ...  The need for an embodied account of meaning is evident not only in a biosemiotic concern.  ...

Computing with Autopoietic Systems [chapter]

Juan Carlos Letelier, Gonzalo Marín, Jorge Mpodozis
2002 Soft Computing and Industry  
This theoretical contruct has found an important place in theoretical biology, but it can also be used as a foundation for a new type of authentically "soft" computing.  ...  The structure is the specific embodiment (implementation) of these processes into specific material (physical) entities. According to this definition, organization is a subset of structure.  ...

Life, Mind, and Robots [chapter]

Noel Sharkey, Tom Ziemke
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Both approaches are contrasted here before a detailed exploration of embodiment is conducted.  ...  In particular we ask whether strong embodiment is possible for robotics, i.e. are robot "minds" similar to animal minds, or is the role of robotics to provide a tool for scientific exploration, a weak  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to warmly thank Amanda Sharkey for helpful comments on an earlier draft of this paper.  ...

Objective patterns in the evolving network of non-equivalent observers

Abir U. Igamberdiev
2008 Biosystems (Amsterdam. Print)  
When we come close to the limits of measurement (either by approaching the speed of light or the values of the Planck's quantum), the relational effects come into place and the objectivity of world's pattern  ...  The world's objective pattern is formed through consistent histories of quantum measurements originating as different branches of the same wave function.  ...  Quantum Measurement Theory and Theoretical Biology Theoretical framework of biology appears to be equivalent to that of the quantum measurement.  ...

Dynamics Without a Framework? Towards an Ecological-Enactive Approach to the Dynamical View of Metaphor

John A Machielsen
2019 Cultura, Lenguaje y Representación  
I close by suggesting how an understanding of metaphor as an ecological affordance of the socio-cultural environment can provide a rich basis for empirical hypotheses within a dynamical science of metaphor  ...  This framework makes possible explanation of both 'lower' cognition and 'higher' cognition emerging in the interaction of an organism with its environment.  ...  The (theoretical) success of a scientific research program is commonly understood to be measured by "[the] new theory [having] some excess empirical content over its predecessor, that is, if it predicts  ...

"Who goes there?" Reflections on signs and personhood in Christopher Hutton's Integrationism and the Self

Paul Cobley
2020 Sign Systems Studies  
Review of Integrationism and the Self: Reflections on the Legal Personhood of Animals [Series Routledge Advances in Communication and Linguistic Theory] by Christopher Hutton.  ...  So, if we amass data of, say, 100,000 individual records of calculating 2+2, we might fi nd that a small but signifi cant amount of persons take the result to be 3, which would give us an average measure  ...  This is mentioned here not to offer a final definition of personhood that legal discourse and integrationism have missed, nor to cap a review of an important book by attempting to bash it with an insight  ...
