Design for a Brain is online!
Wednesday, 29 October 2008

Good news for cognitive science public access. "Design for a Brain" W.R. Ashby's master piece is available online in Archive.Org. It is never too late to read or re-read this pioneering and still contemporary book.

Ashby, W.R. (1952) Design for a brain. NY, Wiley.

Cerebro, Entendimiento y Acción. Congreso de Filosofía en Valladolid
Tuesday, 30 September 2008
The Philosophy Department of the University of Valladolid organizes the annual Philosophy Workshop. This year the title of the workshop is Brain, understanding and action (see full program).

From ASLab, Ricardo Sanz has been invited to give a talk on "Cibernética y Filosofía de la Mente" (Cybernetics and Philosophy of Mind) and Xabier Barandiaran was accepted with an abstract entitled "Vida Mental, un efoque naturalista sobre la autonomía de la conducta" (Mental Life, a naturalized approach to the autonomy of behaviour).

Cognition for Technical Systems - CoTeSys 2008
Written by Jaime Gómez   
Tuesday, 11 December 2007

The 1st International Workshop on Cognition for Technical Systems is taking place from 6-7 October 2008 at Technische Universität München. Jaime Gómez will be presenting Learning in technical systems: a Sign based approach

The paper explores the following assumptions:

  • there is no cognition without categorization
  • concept formation is sign a mediated process which is extended and developed in a formal and operational fashion.
  • learning is involved with forward and inverse cognition.

Xabier Barandiaran @ ASLab
Written by Ricardo Sanz   
Tuesday, 09 September 2008

Xabier Barandiaran, from the University of the Basque Country is going to stay with us for some months. The objectives of this period are:

  • To advance on the theoretical integration of the cognitive robotic projects associated with the ASLAB group (including the ICEA project that is in focus with the euCognition network)
  • To operationalize in terms of dynamical systems and control theory basic cognitive concepts, in particular the notions of agential identity, cognitive/mental life, normativity.
  • To analyse in detail an evolutionary robotic simulation model that satisfies a minimally cognitive task, making use of dynamical system theory and information measurements of causality along dynamical processes.

This stay is supported by the euCognition network funded by the European Commission.
