Outline of a sensory-motor perspective on intrinsically moral agents
We propose that moral behaviour of artificial agents could (and should) be intrinsically grounded in their own sensory-motor experiences. Such an ability depends critically on seven types of competencies. First, intrinsic ...
From Sensorimotor Experiences to Cognitive Development: : How Does Experiential Diversity Influence the Development of an Epigenetic Robot?
