Animal acoustic communication often takes the form of complex sequences, made up of multiple distinct acoustic units. Apart from the well-known example of birdsong, other animals such as insects, amphibians, and mammals (including bats, rodents, primates, and cetaceans) also generate complex acoustic sequences. Occasionally, such as with birdsong, the(More)
– The identification and quantification of couplings between the individual components of a complex system can shed light on its hidden dynamics and provide insights about its mechanistic basis. Embodied cognition emerges and develops largely from the dynamic interactions in the coupled system formed by brain, body, and environment. A crucial problem is how(More)
Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) maintain visual access to each other with their left and right laterally positioned eyes as they swim together in pairs. Their vision is primarily monocular, and signals from each eye cross completely to the contralateral brain hemisphere. The dolphins' visual anatomy and observed behavior suggest that bottlenose(More)
Detecting and tracking social marine mammals, including bottlenose dolphins, can help to explain their social dynamics, predict their behavior, and measure the impact of human interference. Multi-camera setups provide an opportunity to record the behavior of captive dolphins and create a massive dataset from which long term statistics can be extracted, but(More)
Humans, as a cooperative species, need to coordinate in order to achieve goals that are beyond the ability of one individual. Modeling the emergence of coordination can provide ways to understand how successful joint action is established. In this paper, we investigate the problem of two agents coordinating to move an object to one agent's target location(More)
