  • Enlightening Intelligence: Behaviors from Synthetic Psychology

Abstract:

  • Long exposure photographs from the trajectory of a set of autonomous vehicles trigger question about our understanding of intelligence. The design of the behaviors of the mobiles was inspired in the previous work of Braitenberg and other scholars, whom have considered the vehicles artificial creatures that respond to the environment with many similarities to the way other living animals behave. The pictures reflect the colors and movements that characterized the trajectory of the mobile when interacting with the environment, leaving questions about their interpretation and the connection with synthetic psychology within artificial life. Future work with different environments, more advanced algorithms and several different vehicles is discussed.
