Mind RACES: from Reactive to Anticipatory Cognitive Embodied Systems
The general goal of the Mind RACES project
is to investigate different anticipatory cognitive mechanisms and architectures in order to build Cognitive Systems endowed with the ability to predict the outcome of their actions, to build a model of future events, to control their perception anticipating future stimuli and to emotionally react to possible future scenarios. Such Anticipatory Cognitive Systems will contribute to the successful implementation of the desired ambient intelligence.
After 3 years of research (see the Final EU Commission Report) the 7 Partners of MindRACES Consortium produced more than 80 publications, different robotic and software artefacts and important events, such as ABIALS 2008 and the Fall Symposium 2005, that show the importance of the Anticipation in various cognitive context.
