Exploring Robotic Minds: Actions, Symbols, and Consciousness as Self-Organizing Dynamic Phenomena

Jun Tani

Abstract

How do “minds” work? In Exploring Robotic Minds: Actions, Symbols, and Consciousness as Self-Organizing Dynamic Phenomena, Professor Jun Tani reviews key experiments within his own pioneering neurorobotics research project aimed at answering this fundamental and fascinating question. The book shows how symbols and concepts representing the world can emerge via “deep learning” within robots, by using specially designed neural network architectures by which, given iterative interactions between top-down proactive “subjective” and “intentional” processes for plotting action, and bottom-up updates ...
