  1. 1. Natural Intelligence in Artificial Creatures

    Author : Christian Balkenius; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cognitive Studies;

    Abstract : What mechanisms are needed in a cognitive system, such as an animal or a robot, and how do these mechanisms interact with each other? The thesis presents a study of this problem within the field of behavior-based systems and artificial neural networks. The thesis brings together ideas from behavior-based robotics, control theory and machine learning and combines them with models from ethology, psychology and neurobiology in an attempt to synthesize a complete, artificial nervous system for a simulated artificial creature.

  2. 2. Cognitive Interactive Robot Learning

    Author : Benjamin Fonooni; Hellström Thomas; Lars Erik Janlert; Christian Balkenius; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Learning from Demonstration; Imitation Learning; Human Robot Interaction; High-Level Behavior Learning; Shared Control; Cognitive Architectures; Cognitive Robotics; Priming; business data processing; administrativ databehandling;

    Abstract : Building general purpose autonomous robots that suit a wide range of user-specified applications, requires a leap from today's task-specific machines to more flexible and general ones. To achieve this goal, one should move from traditional preprogrammed robots to learning robots that easily can acquire new skills. READ MORE

  3. 3. Brain Emotional Learning-Inspired Models

    Author : Mahboobeh Parsapoor; Bertil Svensson; Urban Bilstrup; Christian Balkenius; Högskolan i Halmstad; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : In this thesis the mammalian nervous system and mammalian brain have been used as inspiration to develop a computational intelligence model based on the neural structure of fear conditioning and to extend the structure of the previous proposed amygdala-orbitofrontal model. The proposed model can be seen as a framework for developing general computational intelligence based on the emotional system instead of traditional models on the rational system of the human brain.

  4. 4. Biologically-Based Interactive Neural Network Models for Visual Attention and Object Recognition

    Author : Mohammad Saifullah; Arne Jönsson; Christian Balkenius; Anders Lansner; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Biologically-Based Models; Object Recognition; Visual Attention; Interactive Neural Network; Occlusion; Overlapping;

    Abstract : The main focus of this thesis is to develop biologically-based computational models for object recognition. A series of models for attention and object recognition were developed in the order of increasing functionality and complexity. READ MORE

  5. 5. Exploring Biologically-Inspired Interactive Networks for Object Recognition

    Author : Mohammad Saifullah; Arne Jönsson; Rita Kovordányi; Christian Balkenius; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Interactive neural networks; Biologically-Inspired models; Visual attention; Object recognition.; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with biologically-inspired interactive neural networks for the task of object recognition. Such networks offer an interesting alternative approach to traditional image processing techniques. Although the networks are very powerful classification tools, they are difficult to handle due to their bidirectional interactivity. READ MORE
