Human Reinforcement Learning of Sequential Action
Learning sequential actions is an essential ability, for most daily activities are sequential. We modify the trajectory serial reaction time (SRT) task, used to teach people a consistent sequence ofExpand

Everyday robotic action: lessons from human action control
Robots are increasingly capable of performing everyday human activities such as cooking, cleaning, and doing the laundry. This requires the real-time planning and execution of complex, temporallyExpand

Reward effects on sequential action learning in a trajectory serial reaction time task
The serial reaction time (SRT) task measures learning of a repeating stimulus sequence as speed up in keypresses, and is used to study implicit and motor learning research which aim to explainExpand

The effect of context-dependent information and sentence constructions on perceived humanness of an agent in a Turing test
Abstract In a Turing test, a judge decides whether their conversation partner is either a machine or human. What cues does the judge use to determine this? In particular, are presumably uniqueExpand

Anthropomorphization of artificial agents leads to fair and strategic, but not altruistic behavior
With robots playing an increasing role in our daily lives, our emotional responses to them have become an active subject of study. The process of anthropomorphization, ascribing human affordances toExpand

IQ and working memory predict plan-based sequential action learning
How people learn and produce sequential actions (e.g., making coffee) has been the subject of empirical and theoretical scrutiny, for it covers most human activities. One useful distinction isExpand
How higher goals are constructed and collapse under stress: a hierarchical Bayesian control systems perspective.
In this paper, we aim to integrate findings from the fields of machine learning and network science to argue that organisms can be modeled as hierarchical Bayesian control systems with small worldExpand
