This volume is intended to help advance the field of artificial neural networks along the lines of complexity present in animal brains. In particular, we are interested in examining the biological phenomena of modularity and specialized learning. These topics are already the subject of research in another area of artificial intelligence. The design of complete autonomous agents (CAA), such as mobile robots or virtual reality characters, has been dominated by modular architectures and context… CONTINUE READING
