From Animals to Animats 2: Proceedings of the Second International Conference on Simulation of Adaptive Behavior (Complex Adaptive Systems)by Jean Arcady Meyer
Synopses & Reviews
More than sixty contributions in From Animals to Animats 2 by researchers in ethology, ecology, cybernetics, artificial intelligence, robotics, and related fields investigate behaviors and the underlying mechanisms that allow animals and, potentially, robots to adapt and survive in uncertain environments. Jean-Arcady Meyer is Director of Research, CNRS, Paris. Herbert L. Roitblat is Professor of Psychology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Stewart W. Wilson is a scientist at The Rowland Institute for Science, Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Topics covered: The Animat Approach to Adaptive Behavior, Perception and Motor Control, Action Selection and Behavioral Sequences, Cognitive Maps and Internal World Models, Learning, Evolution, Collective Behavior.
Book News Annotation:
Proceedings of the December 1992 conference held to advance the frontier of an exciting new approach to understanding intelligence: the simulation and building of artificial animals ("animats") which must survive and adapt in progressively more challenging environments. Representing fields as diverse as ethology, psychology, connectionism, evolutionary computation, and robotics, the 59 papers (and 11 posters) address topics in the animat approach to adaptive behavior, perception and motor control, action selection and behavioral consequences, cognitive maps and internal world models, learning, evolution, and collective behavior. No subject index.
