Artificial cognitive systems : a primer by David Vernon( Book )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a concise and accessible introduction to the emerging field of artificial cognitive systems. Cognition, both natural and artificial, is about anticipating the need for action and developing the capacity to predict the outcome of those actions. Drawing on artificial intelligence, developmental psychology, and cognitive neuroscience, the field of artificial cognitive systems has as its ultimate goal the creation of computer-based systems that can interact with humans and serve society in a variety of ways. This primer brings together recent work in cognitive science and cognitive robotics to offer readers a solid grounding on key issues. The book first develops a working definition of cognitive systems-broad enough to encompass multiple views of the subject and deep enough to help in the formulation of theories and models. It surveys the cognitivist, emergent, and hybrid paradigms of cognitive science and discusses cognitive architectures derived from them. It then turns to the key issues, with chapters devoted to autonomy, embodiment, learning and development, memory and prospection, knowledge and representation, and social cognition. Ideas are introduced in an intuitive, natural order, with an emphasis on the relationships among ideas and building to an overview of the field. The main text is straightforward and succinct; sidenotes drill deeper on specific topics and provide contextual links to further reading

"Fourier Vision will be of value to researchers in image processing and computer vision and especially to those who have to deal with superimposed transparent or translucent objects. Researchers in application areas such as medical imaging and acoustic signal processing will also find this of interest."--Jacket

A roadmap for cognitive development in humanoid robots by David Vernon( Book )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book addresses the central role played by development in cognition. The focus is on applying our knowledge of development in natural cognitive systems, specifically human infants, to the problem of creating artificial cognitive systems in the guise of humanoid robots. The approach is founded on the three-fold premise that (a) cognition is the process by which an autonomous self-governing agent acts effectively in the world in which it is embedded, (b) the dual purpose of cognition is to increase the agent's repertoire of effective actions and its power to anticipate the need for future actions and their outcomes, and (c) development plays an essential role in the realization of these cognitive capabilities. Our goal in this book is to identify the key design principles for cognitive development. We do this by bringing together insights from four areas: enactive cognitive science, developmental psychology, neurophysiology, and computational modelling. This results in roadmap comprising a set of forty-three guidelines for the design of a cognitive architecture and its deployment in a humanoid robot. The book includes a case study based on the iCub, an open-systems humanoid robot which has been designed specifically as a common platform for research on embodied cognitive systems.¡
Data fusion applications : workshop proceedings, Brussels, November 25, 1992 by S Pfleger( Book )

7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Data fusion, the ability to combine data derived from several sources to provide a coherent, informative, and useful characterization of a situation, is a challenging task. There is no unified and proven solution which is applicable in all circumstances, but there are many plausible and useful approaches which can be and are used to solve particular applications. This volume presents the proceedings of the workshop Data Fusion Applications hosted in Brussels by the 1992 ESPRIT Conference and Exhibition. It contains 22 papers from 69 experts, who present advanced research results on data fusion together with practicalsolutions to multisensor data fusion in a wide variety of applications: real-time expert systems, robotics, medical diagnosis and patient surveillance, monitoring and control, marine protection, surveillance and safety in public transportation systems, image processing and interpretation, and environmental monitoring. The research forms part of the ESPRIT project DIMUS (Data Integration in Multisensor Systems)

Complex sports biodynamics : with practical applications in tennis by Tijana T Ivancevic( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What are motor abilities of Olympic champions? What are essential cognitive characteristics of Mark Spitz, Carl Lewis and Roger Federer? What are the secrets of selection for the future Olympic champions? Does for every sport exist a unique model of an Olympic champion?"Complex Sports Biodynamics" gives modern scientific answers to the above questions. Its purpose is to give you the answer to everything you ever wanted to ask about sport champions and advanced tennis in particular. It dispels classical myths of a "biomechanically sound" serve, forehand, and backhand, and describes and explains the physical and mental abilities of a champion in future tennis with full appreciation to the long-time world number one, Roger Federer. Regarding the future tennis champion model outlined in this book, the Federer-model will be taken as a basis. This book includes 12 chapters on various topics related to complex sports biodynamics, a strong list of references on sports science in general and tennis in particular, as well as a comprehensive index. To make the book more readable for the widest possible audience, the last chapter on tennis has been written in a popular (non-rigorous) question & answer format
Spatial temporal patterns for action-oriented perception in roving robots by David Vernon( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume collects the most significant results of the European research Project called "SPARK", whose aim was to develop new cognitive architectures and new sensing-perceiving-moving artefacts, inspired by the basic principles of living systems and based on the concept of "self-organization" in complex systems generating spatial temporal patterns. The book is organized in three parts. Part I "Principles of insect perception" reports a thorough survey of the state of the art in perception for action. The central Part II "Cognitive Models" describes new approaches to attain high cognitive capabilities in roving robots, for which detailed Structures are still lacking, even referring to insect brain. Some of the models introduced rely on the insect-inspired parallel sensory-motor pathways, others exploit the emergence Spatial-temporal Patterns (used as perceptual states) arising in non linear Reaction-Diffusion Equations, some others build upon the neural networks modelling Stick Insect locomotion. The last part of the book Part III "Software/Hardware cognitive architecture and experiments" is related to the implementation of the proposed cognitive models on a software /hardware FPGA-based architecture embedded on wheeled and legged robots. Multimedia material, related to the experiments presented in the book, is available on the SPARK web page: www.spark.diees.unict.it
