dc.description.abstractWe investigate the correlation between the information theoretic measure of empowerment and the graph theoretic measure of closeness centrality, to better understand the structural conditions that must exist in a world for learning and adaptation. We examine both measures in both a simple gridworld scenario, represented as a graph, and on a scale-free graph. We show a strong correlation between the two measures, and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of both. We go on to show how the local measurement of empowerment can in many cases predict a measure for the global measurement of closeness centrality.en
