How do larvae do it?

State of the art: To bridge the gap between cognitive learning capabilities and neural circuits, we need to understand behavioural control. We can tackle this directly in the larvae. Placed on an agarose substrate in a petri-dish (as is the standard situation … Continue reading

Learning architectures for robot control

State of the art: Many architectures have been proposed for robot control that combine innate, low-level sensorimotor controllers with learning mechanisms to refine the behaviour. Perhaps most widely deployed are ‘hybrid’ architectures, in which the upper layers use explicit knowledge representation and … Continue reading
