  • How insects learn about the sun's course: alternative modeling approaches

    One of the major puzzles in animal behavior, arid a major problem to be solved in the design of robots, concerns how spatial patterns in the environment can be encoded internally and used for navigation in a complex natural environment. Most work on this issue has concerned landmark learning. This paper deals with a phenomenon of spatial learning that is at least as widespread in the animal world as landmark learning, but has received comparatively little attention. The phenomenon is the ability to learn the course of the sun relative to earth-bound features, and thus to use the sun as a true compass. After reviewing behavioral evidence from bees and ants, two particularly well studied species, we evaluate the applicability of symbolic and connectionist approaches to modeling the internal representation of this environmental pattern.

  • Appendix

    The effort to explain the imitative abilities of humans and other animals draws on fields as diverse as animal behavior, artificial intelligence, computer science, comparative psychology, neuroscience, primatology, and linguistics. This volume represents a first step toward integrating research from those studying imitation in humans and other animals, and those studying imitation through the construction of computer software and robots.Imitation is of particular importance in enabling robotic or software agents to share skills without the intervention of a programmer and in the more general context of interaction and collaboration between software agents and humans. Imitation provides a way for the agent -- -whether biological or artificial-- to establish a "social relationship" and learn about the demonstrator's actions, in order to include them in its own behavioral repertoire. Building robots and software agents that can imitate other artificial or human agents in an appropriate way involves complex problems of perception, experience, context, and action, solved in nature in various ways by animals that imitate.

  • Towards a comprehensive Alife-model of the evolution of the nervous system and adaptive behavior

    The potentials and tools that are offered by Alife for biology in modeling the nervous system and animal behavior are mainly unexploited. There is no consistent Alife model of the biological evolution of the nervous system as yet. whereas the modeling tools are at hand and their application for this purpose seems evident. In a biologically grounded model we have to make every possible effort to use principles known from biology, and to minimize the arbitrarily employed organizing rules. The aim of our work is to create a biologically accurate Alife model of the formation and evolution of the nervous system in connection with the adaptive behavior. In this article we concentrate on the structure of the modeled genome, which is the basis of playing a double biological role: to ensure an open-ended evolutionary process, as well as to direct the ontogenesis. The main questions we examined are: what are the basic rules of construction that are sufficient to create a workable nervous system and how can we model them in a biologically realistic way?

  • Toward Synthesizing Artificial Neural Networks that Exhibit Cooperative Intelligent Behavior: Some Open Issues in Artificial Life

    The tasks that animals perform require a high degree of intelligence. Animals forage for food, migrate, navigate, court mates, rear offspring, defend against predators, construct nests, and so on. These tasks commonly require social interaction/cooperation and are accomplished by animal nervous systems, which are the result of billions of years of evolution and complex developmental/learning processes. The Artificial Life (AL) approach to synthesizing intelligent behavior is guided by this biological perspective. In this article we examine some of the numerous open problems in synthesizing intelligent animal behavior (especially cooperative behavior involving communication) that face the field of AL, a discipline still in its infancy.

  • The Experimental Study and Computer Simulation of Fish Behavior in the Uniform Environment

    We have studied experimentally the carp exploratory behavior in the circular corridor under uniform illumination and in the absence of external landmarks. The behavior was not uniform despite the uniformity of environment The alternation of two modes of behavior, search (accompanied by high turn frequency) and ranging (with few or no turns), was observed. The existence of distinct modes manifested itself in the positive correlation between turn frequencies at successive time intervals, as well as in abrupt switching between high and low turn frequencies. We developed a model based on the one- dimension map: X n = λn X n−1 (1X n−1), where X is the tendency to turn, and parameter λ is influenced by Gaussian white noise caused by spontaneous nervous activity. There was a correlation between successive values of the tendency, as well as switches from series of low values to series of high ones under influence of the noise. The behavior of the model is the case of noise- induced phase transitions and matches experimental data qualitatively. It is concluded that a noise generated by the nervous system can play a role in the shaping of animal behavior.

  • Evolving Imitating Agents and the Emergence of a Neural Mirror System

    Imitation is a highly complex cognitive process, employing vision, perception, representation, memory and motor control. The underlying mechanisms that give rise to imitative behavior have attracted a lot of attention in recent years and have been the subject of research in various disciplines, from neuroscience to animal behavior and human psychology. In particular, studies in monkeys and humans have discovered a neural mirror system that demonstrates an internal correlation between the representations of perceptual and motor functionalities. In contradistinction to previous engineering-based approaches, we focus on the evolutionary origins of imitation and present a novel framework for studying the emergence of imitative behavior. We successfully develop evolutionary adaptive autonomous agents that spontaneously demonstrate imitative learning, facilitating a comprehensive study of the emerging underlying neural mechanisms. Interestingly, some of these agents are found to embody a neural "mirror" device analogous to those identified in biological systems. Further analysis of these agents' networks reveals complex dynamics, combining innate perceptual-motor coupling with acquired context-action associations, to accomplish the required task.

  • A Bottom-Up Mechanism for Behavior Selection in an Artificial Creature

    In this paper we propose a mechanism for motivational competition and selection of behavior. One important characteristic of this mechanism is that the selection of behavior is modelled as an emergent property of a parallel process. This in contrast with mechanisms for behavior selection and motivational competition proposed earlier, which are based on a hierarchical. preprogrammed control structure. We show that selection of behavior can be modeled in a bottom-up way using an activation/inhibition dynamics among the different behaviors that can be selected. There is no weighing up of behaviors in a cognitive manner and neither are hierarchical or bureaucratic structures imposed. The paper elaborates upon the results we obtained with simulated creatures based on this mechanism. It draws parallels between characteristics observed in animal behavior and characteristics demonstrated by our artificial creatures. Examples are: displacement behavior, opportunistic behavior, fatigue, selective attention, and so on.

  • Modeling Adaptive Autonomous Agents

    One category of research in Artificial Life is concerned with modeling and building so-called adaptive autonomous agents, which are systems that inhabit a dynamic, unpredictable environment in which they try to satisfy a set of time-dependent goals or motivations. Agents are said to be adaptive if they improve their competence at dealing with these goals. based on experience. Autonomous agents constitute a new approach to the study of Artificial Intelligence (AI), which is highly inspired by biology, in particular ethology, the study of animal behavior. Research in autonomous agents has brought about a new wave of excitement into the field of AI. This paper reflects on the state of the art of this new approach. It attempts to extract its main ideas, evaluates what contributions have been made so far, and identifies its current limitations and open problems.
