This survey presents an overview of the autonomous development of mental capabilities in computational agents. [...] Key Method We then review several cognitive architectures drawn from these paradigms. In each of these areas, we highlight the implications and attendant problems of adopting a developmental approach, both from phylogenetic and ontogenetic points of view. We conclude with a summary of the key architectural features that systems capable of autonomous development of mental capabilities should…Expand
Building Blocks for Cognitive Robots: Embodied Simulation and Schemata in a Cognitive Architecture
TLDR
The view that the cognitive system houses a network of active elements, which organize the agent's experiences and collaboratively carry out many cognitive functions is promoted, to answer the question of how to build truly autonomous cognitive robots. Expand
Innate Theories as a Basis for Autonomous Mental Development
Sloman (in robotics), Chomsky and Pinker (in natural language), and others, e.g., Rosen­ berg (in human cooperative behavior) have proposed that some abstract theories relevant to cognitive activityExpand

This paper provides an accessible introduction to the cognitive systems paradigm of enaction and shows how it forms a practical framework for robotic systems that can develop cognitive abilities. TheExpand
Methodological aspects for cognitive architectures construction: a study and proposal
TLDR
A case study between cognitive functions is detailed, using visual perception and working memory to exemplify the proposal’s assumptions, postulates and binding tools, from their meta-architectural conceptions to validation. Expand
Enactive artificial intelligence: Investigating the systemic organization of life and mind
TLDR
It is argued that the biological foundations of enactive cognitive science can provide the conceptual tools that are needed to diagnose more clearly the shortcomings of current embodied AI and provide a promising way of eventually overcoming the current limitations of embodied AI, especially in terms of providing fuller models of natural embodied cognition.

Autonomous Learning in Psychologically-Oriented Cognitive Architectures: A Survey
Abstract This survey paper discusses the topic of autonomous learning in psychologically-oriented cognitive architectures and reviews some of the most popular cognitive architectures used inExpand
Hybridization of cognitive models using evolutionary strategies
TLDR
The presented framework proposes an Hybrid Cognitive Architecture that relies on integrating of emergent systems approaches —connectionist and autopoietic systems—, and cognitivist approaches, in order to combine implicit and explicit processes necessary in developing cognitive skills. Expand
Enactive Artificial Intelligence
The embodied and situated approach to artificial intelligence (AI) has matured and become a viable alternative to computationalist approaches with respect to the practical goal of building artificialExpand
A cognitive neuroscience perspective on embodied language for human–robot cooperation
TLDR
A Hybrid Comprehension Model is proposed that links compact propositional representations of sentences and discourse with their temporal unfolding in situated simulations, under the control of grammar, to address issues in embodied sentence processing from a "cognitive neural systems" approach.

A Cognitive Architecture for Artificial Vision
TLDR
A new cognitive architecture for artificial vision aimed at an autonomous intelligent system is proposed, which concerns the active role of a focus of attention mechanism in the link between the conceptual and the linguistic level: the exploration process of the perceived scene is driven by linguistic and associative expectations.
