We present a study of neural network architectures able to internally simulate perceptions and actions. All these architectures employ the novel Associative Self-Organizing Map (A-SOM) as a perceptual neural network. The A-SOM develops a representation of its input space, but in addition also learns to associate its activity with an arbitrary number of(More)
— The Ikaros project started in 2001 with the aim of developing an open infrastructure for system-level brain modeling. The system has developed into a general tool for cognitive modeling as well as robot control. Here we describe the main parts of the Ikaros system and how it has been used to implement various cognitive systems and to control a number of(More)
Fertility rates have dramatically decreased in the last two decades, especially in men. It has been described that environmental factors, as well as life habits, may affect semen quality. Artificial intelligence techniques are now an emerging methodology as decision support systems in medicine. In this paper we compare three artificial intelligence(More)
We have experimented with proprioception in a bio-inspired self-organizing haptic system. To this end a 12 d.o.f. anthropomorphic robot hand with proprioceptive sensors was developed. The system uses a self-organizing map for the mapping of the explored objects. In our experiments the system was trained and tested with 10 different objects of different(More)
We address a contrastive study between the well known Multi-Layer Perceptron (MLP) and Radial Basis Function (RBF) neural networks and a SOM based supervised architecture in a number of data classification tasks. Well known databases like Breast Cancer, Parkinson and Iris were used to evaluate the three architectures by constructing confusion matrices. The(More)
