Living machines

Embodied cognition is the view that intelligence arises out of the interaction between an agent’s body and its environment. Taking such a view generates novel scientific hypotheses about biological intelligence and opportunities for advancing artificial intelligence. In this chapter we review one such set of hypotheses regarding how a robot may generate models of self, and others, and then exploit those models to recover from damage or exhibit the rudiments of social cognition. This modeling of self and others draws mainly on three concepts from neuroscience and AI: forward and inverse models in the brain, the neuronal replicator hypothesis, and the brain as a hierarchical prediction machine. The chapter concludes with future directions, including the integration of deep learning methods with embodied cognition.
