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 have developed an 8 d.o.f. robot hand which has been tested with three computational models of haptic perception. Two of the models are based on the tensor product of different proprioceptive and sensory signals and a self-organizing map (SOM), and one uses a novel self-organizing neural network, the T-MPSOM. The computational models have been trained(More)
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)
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. In this paper we use artificial intelligence techniques in order to predict semen characteristics resulting from environmental factors, life habits, and health status, with(More)

Urinary incontinence is one of the largest diseases affecting between 10% and 30% of the adult population and an increase is expected in the next decade with rising treatment costs as a consequence. There are(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)
We review a number of self-organizing-robot systems that are able to extract features from haptic sensory information. They are all based on self-organizing maps (SOMs). First, we describe a number of systems based on the three-fingered-robot hand, i.e., the Lund University Cognitive Science (LUCS) Haptic-Hand II, that successfully extracts the shapes of(More)
