  1. 1. Learning reactive behaviors with constructive neural networks in mobile robotics

    Author : Jun Li; Tom Duckett; Tom Ziemke; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computer science; Datavetenskap; Computer and Systems Science; Data- och systemvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates a learning system for acquiring robot behaviors by mapping sensor information directly to motor actions. It addresses the integration of three learning paradigms, namely unsupervised learning (UL), supervised learning (SL), and reinforcement learning (RL). READ MORE

  2. 2. Modeling the Role of Energy Management in Embodied Cognition

    Author : Alberto Montebelli; Tom Ziemke; Robert Lowe; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; Teknik; Technology;

    Abstract : The quest for adaptive and autonomous robots, flexible enough to smoothly comply with unstructured environments and operate in close interaction with humans, seems to require a deep rethinking of classical engineering methods. The adaptivity of natural organisms, whose cognitive capacities are rooted in their biological organization, is an obvious source of inspiration. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cognition reversed : Robot learning from demonstration

    Author : Erik Billing; Lars Erik Janlert; Thomas Hellström; Tom Ziemke; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computer science; Datavetenskap; Cognitive science; Kognitionsvetenskap; computer and systems sciences; data- och systemvetenskap;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis investigates techniques for learning from demonstration (LFD). LFD is a well established approach to robot learning, where a teacher demonstrates a behavior to a robot pupil. This thesis focuses on LFD where a human teacher demonstrates a behavior by controlling the robot via teleoperation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Singing the body electric : Understanding the role of embodiment in performing and composing interactive music

    Author : Anna Einarsson; Tom Ziemke; Per Mårtenson; Sally-Jane Norman; Kungl. Musikhögskolan; []
    Keywords : music composition; embodiment; singing; interactive music; live electronics; affordances; performance technologies; computer music;

    Abstract : Almost since the birth of electronic music, composers have been fascinated by the prospect of integrating the human voice with its expressiveness and complexity into electronic musical works. This thesis addresses how performing with responsive technologies in mixed works, i.e. READ MORE

  5. 5. Validating User Engagement and Effectiveness of Training Simulations : A mixed-methods approach informed by embodied cognition and psychophysiological measures

    Author : Hiran B. Ekanayake; Robert Ramberg; Tom Ziemke; Per Backlund; Kamalanath Priyantha Hewagamage; Craig Lindley; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; training simulators; simulation validation; psychological fidelity; psychophysiological measures; embodied cognition; electroencephalography EEG ; galvanic skin response GSR ; träningssimulatorer; validering av simuleringar; psykologisk realism; psyko-fysiologiska mått; kroppslig kognition; elektroencefalografi EEG ; galvanisk hudrespons GSR ; data- och systemvetenskap; Computer and Systems Sciences;

    Abstract : Simulation-based training has gained widespread attention recently as a response to drawbacks associated with traditional training approaches, such as high training costs (instructors, equipment, etc.), high risks (e.g. pilot training), and ethical issues (e. READ MORE
