Final Workshop Series ‘Neural Control: From Data to Machines’
Plan4Act – Predictive Neural Information for Proactive Actions: From Monkey Brain to SmartHouse Control Project Abstract:Planning and mental simulation of actions and outcomes are a major cognitive trait of humans. We predict action consequences and perform goal-directed actions in proactive, forward-looking ways. By contrast, systems that lack predictive planning are reactive and dominated by reflex-like, […]
