In October 2011, the “2nd European Network for Cognitive Systems, Robotics and Interaction”, EUCogII, held its meeting in Groningen on “Autonomous activity in real-world environments”, organized by Tjeerd Andringa and myself. This is a brief personal report on why we thought autonomy in real-world environments is central for cognitive systems research and what I think I learned about it. The theses that crystallized are that (a) autonomy is a relative property and a matter of degree, (b… 
Fully Autonomous AI
TLDR
It is argued that a general AI may very well come to modify its final goal in the course of developing its understanding of the world, which has important implications for how to assess the long-term prospects and risks of artificial intelligence.
Autonomous technology and the greater human good
  • S. Omohundro
  • Computer Science
    J. Exp. Theor. Artif. Intell.

TLDR
The use of formal methods to create provably safe but limited autonomous systems and a description of the ‘Safe-AI Scaffolding Strategy’ for creating powerful safe systems with a high confidence of safety at each stage of development.
Challenges for artificial cognitive systems
TLDR
This paper formulate the challenges for artificial cognitive systems in terms of a definition of what a cognitive system is: a system that learns from experience and uses its acquired knowledge in a flexible manner to achieve its own goals.
Challenges for Artificial Cognitive Systems*
TLDR
The challenges are not (yet more) predictions of the future, but a guideline to what are the aims and what would constitute progress in cognitive systems research.
The Open University ’ s repository of research publications and other research outputs A Subsumption Agent for Collaborative Free Improvisation
This paper discusses the design and evaluation of an artificial agent for collaborative musical free improvisation. The agent provides a means to investigate the underpinnings of improvisational
A Subsumption Agent for Collaborative Free Improvisation
TLDR
The system design and connected studies bring together Subsumption robotics, ecological psychology, and musical improvisation, and they contribute to an empirical grounding of an ecological theory of improvisation.
Toward a Holistic Approach to Verification and Validation of Autonomous Cognitive Systems
TLDR
The article discusses the model of the environment used for statically verifying the system’s behaviour and demonstrates its feasibility by presenting its implementation on top of a framework integrating the Agent Java PathFinder model checker.
Challenges for Artiༀ・cial Cognitive Systems*
TLDR
The declared goal of this paper is to fill this gap: cognitive systems research needs questions and challenges that are a guideline to what are the aims and what would constitute progress.
Cognitive Robotics
TLDR
This edited collection presents theoretical research in cognitive robotics and considers computational intelligence for cognitive robotics based on informationally structured space and examines how people respond to robots and what makes robots psychologically appealing to humans.

Is There a Future for AI Without Representation?
TLDR
It turns out that the supposedly characteristic features of “new AI” (embodiment, situatedness, absence of reasoning, and absence of representation) are all present in conventional systems: “New AI’ is just like old AI.

TLDR
Just as AI has moved away from classical AI, human-computer interaction (HCI) must move away from what I call 'good old fashioned HCI' to 'new HCI', which integrates into cognitive systems research and designs intentional systems that provide resistance to the human agent.
