CDS TC Task Force on Action-Perception


(Pierre-Yves Oudeyer) #1

Aim and Scope:

The CDS Task Force on Action and Perception is primarily concerned with developmental processes as well as learning and representation of action and perception in humans and artificial agents, including action-perception cycle, active perception, sensory-motor learning. Members of this task force observe behavioral data of human and animals, construct basic mathematical models or synthetic computational models, and perform synthetic robotics experiments based on those models in order explore the underlying mechanisms of action and perception.
