Abstract:

This project provided partial support for an international conference on the simulation of adaptive behavior. The conference was held in Honolulu, HI on December 7-11, 1992. It was attended by more than 100 scientists from the US, Europe, and Asia. The main topic of the conference was how to use theories of animal behavior as a guide in the construction of robots and other autonomous agents. Contributors discussed how to develop behavior-based artificial intelligence, perception and motor control, action selection and the structuring of behavioral sequences, cognitive maps and internal world models, learning, evolution and adaptation, and collective behavior.
