Social interaction for autonomous systems WASP-HS Topic Leader

Project: Research

Project Details


The purpose is to present a novel model for social interaction with autonomous systems, based in embodied and embedded cognition, (broadly) dynamic systems theory, and philosophy, and taking sustainability as a condition of adequacy. The model is multi-scalar and bottom-up, exploring novel forms of control and learning. Social cognition is considered fundamental and irreducible to individual cognition. The goal is to present a model that is transparent and intuitive to its users, yet respects fundamental differences between artificial and natural life.
