Soichiro Arai and Junichi Takeno. Discussion on explicit consciousness, sub-consciousness, and self-awareness in a conscious system.

What is “self-awareness”? How can explicit consciousness and sub-consciousness be mapped in relation to each other? How are they related to the self? How can these entities be represented in an artificial conscious system? These questions are the focus of this article. People are aware of only the behavior that they are focusing on; they cannot be directly aware of routine behavior such as walking and breathing. The latter is generally called unconscious behavior, and here we call it sub-conscious behavior. To understand self-awareness, therefore, firstly it is important to map explicit …

Naoya Arakawa. Simulating the Usage Acquisition of Two-Word Sentences with a First- or Second-Person Subject and Verb.

This article examines a minimalist mechanism in a simple language game to acquire the use of two-word sentences consisting of a first- or second-person pronoun as the subject and a verb as the predicate. In an experiment, a learner agent with minimalist architecture learned to select the subject and verb while interacting with a caretaker agent. The assumptions and implications of the experiment are discussed.

Kensuke Arai and Junichi Takeno. Discussion on the Rise of the Self in a Conscious System.

What is human self? Some argue that there is no such thing as self. However, the subjective feeling that “I am writing these words” makes it hard to deny the existence of the self. We assume that as long as there is the term “self,” there must be some collection of neural networks that represents the concept of the term. Although the whole picture is still a mystery, we have taken a step forward to unraveling the mystery by introducing the idea that “the emergence of a new behavior that prioritizes the body underlies the rise of the self.” When performing imitation behavior, a …

Daiki Matsumoto, Hanwen Xu and Junichi Takeno. Simulation of the Cognitive Process in Looking at Rubin’s Vase.

We have successfully simulated the cognitive process in looking at Rubin’s Vase. Rubin’s Vase is an ambiguous image developed by the Danish psychologist Edgar Rubin. The ambiguous image allows the viewer to interpret it in more than one way. The Rubin’s Vase image used in this study depicts a vase in the center in a way that its contour matches the human profile, allowing the viewer to interpret the image as either “a vase in the center” or “two faces looking at each other.” The program we have developed is designed to enable the internal representation systems to change their …

Tomoya Sumioka and Junichi Takeno. Discussion of Stalking Behavior Using a Conscious System.

Stalking behavior, characterized by specific and dreadful acts such as persistent following, repeated sending of unwanted gifts, lack of sympathy, and even willingness to kill the victim, has become a serious concern in modern society. However, since stalking behavior has something partly in common with any criminal behavior, further discussion of this topic is considered helpful in determining factors behind various criminal behavior. Thus, there is an urgent need to investigate how this mysterious and dangerous behavior arises. There are three main types of stalking behavior: …

Vladimir Redko and Zarema Sokhova. Model of Collective Behavior of Investors and Producers in the Decentralized Economic System.

Yuichi Takayama and Junichi Takeno. A conscious robot that can venture into an unknown environment in search of pleasure.

A “conscious system that can venture into an unknown environment” has been proposed. This study models the process of consciousness of a person who is going into an unknown environment. First, we assumed that to go into an unknown environment, the person needs to be curious about that environment and assured of its safety. Curiosity is a tendency to become interested in unknown phenomena and draw information from them. We consider that to acquire the behavior of going into an unknown environment (curiosity behavior), firstly the person needs in some way to go through many experiences of …

Masahiro Miyata and Takashi Omori. Modeling emotion and inference as a value calculation system.

There were many modeling studies on the emotion. But most of them were phenomenological and don’t approach to the brain or cognitive mechanism. In this study, we discuss on a possibility of its computational modeling based on an idea that an emotion in a wider sense is a value calculation system for an action decision. First, we show a possible brain architecture that the emotion system has a tight interaction with the cortical intelligent system through an interaction between the brain information processing areas of neocortex and limbic system. Then, in this study, we focused on a …

We propose a port-is-in-use attack, which is intended for leaking sensitive information in multilevel secure operating systems. Our approach is based on TCP socket mechanism widely used in Linux for interprocess communication. Despite the strong limitations inherent in operating systems with mandatory access control, sockets may not be restricted by the security policy, which makes it possible theoretically to transfer information from one process to another from a high security level to a low one. The proposed attack belongs to the operating system storage transition-based class attack. The …

Anna Epishkina and Sergey Zapechnikov. A technique of blockchain dispersal for efficient storage.

Blockchain has become a very popular technique of creating non-editable data registers. Over time, very significant amount of data accumulates in these registers. At the same time access to this data occurs relatively rarely, mainly in order to take reference or resolve conflicts. Traditional technology implies that each participant of peer-to-peer network stores a full copy of the blockchain. We propose to apply algorithms of information array dispersal and reconstruction to drastically reduce the amount of data stored by nodes of blockchain network. We provide evaluation of memory usage …

Anna Epishkina and Sergey Zapechnikov. Discovering and clustering hidden time patterns in blockchain ledger.

Currently, non-editable blockchain-based ledgers become important tools for cryptocurrency transactions, auditing, smart contracts, copyright registration and many other applications. In this regard, there is a need to analyze the typical, repetitive actions written to the ledger, for example, to identify suspicious cryptocurrency transactions, a chain of events that led to information security incident, or to predict recurrence of some situation in the future. We propose to use for these purposes the algorithms for T-patterns discovering and to cluster the identified behavioral patterns …

Anna Epishkina and Sergey Zapechnikov. On attribute-based encryption for access control to multidimensional data structures.

Multidimensional data structures are widely used in modern information technologies. We demonstrate that, in addition to well-known applications for OLAP, the blockchain ledgers can also be interpreted as multidimensional data structures. They sometimes contain private or other sensitive information. We argue that attribute-based encryption is a handy tool to control access to multidimensional data structures, discussing the advantages and disadvantages of ciphertext-policy and key-policy attribute-based encryption for this task.

Deep learning models of vision have recently achieved human-level of performance in tasks such as object recognition and face identification. However, the extent to which these computational models resemble the way biological vision works remains unclear. We address this question by investigating how a deep learning model of face identification represents faces and by comparing the results to data from behavioural experiments. To this end, we use the Bubbles technique (Gosselin & Schyns, 2001) in order to find the critical regions within an image which are needed for correct face …

Jonathan Rosales, Myrna S. Zamarripa, Felix Ramos and Marco-Antonio Ramos. Automatic reward system for virtual creatures, emergent processes of emotions and physiological motivation.

Emotional and motivational evaluations are part of the development of rewards within living beings. Particularly, during the perception of stimuli in the environment, these evaluations collaborate with one another to generate reward values automatically, without the need to involve rational processes. In this paper we propose a conceptual model of automatic reward for virtual creatures inspired by neuroscientific evidence, contemplating the processes of emotions and motivations, as well as the generation and recovery of automatic reward values. According to the evidence, the reward process ….

The ability to infer goals, consequences of one’s own and others’ actions is a critical desirable feature for robots to truly become our companions-thereby opening up applications in several domains. This article proposes the viewpoint that the ability to remember our own past experiences based on present context enables us to infer future consequences of both our actions/goals and observed actions/goals of the other (by analogy). In this context, a biomimetic episodic memory architecture to encode diverse learning experiences of iCub humanoid is presented. The critical feature is that ….

Emanuel Diamant. Rethinking BICA’s R&D challenges: Grief revelations of an upset revisionist.

Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures (BICA) is a subfield of Artificial Intelligence aimed at creating machines that emulate human cognitive abilities. What distinguish BICA from other AI approaches is that it based on principles drawn from biology and neuroscience. There is a widespread conviction that nature has a solution for almost all problems we are faced with today. We have only to pick up the solution and replicate it in our design. However, Nature does not easily give up her secrets. Especially, when it is about human brain deciphering. For that reason, large Brain Research ….

Norifumi Watanabe and Fumihiko Mori. Sensory Integration Model of Pedestrian by Vection and Somatosensory Stimulation.

In this study, we clarify the integration mechanism of sensory information of vision and somatosensory sensation in walking. In this experiment, we evaluated the possibility of affecting walking by attenuating a somatosensory sensation by giving vibration stimulation to the feet, and by presenting optic flow to the peripheral visual field to generate a self – motion sensation of vision superiority. Experimental results confirmed that walking in the direction opposite to the self – motion sensation is presented by presenting the optic flow and vibration stimulation. Based on the results of ….

Liudmila Zhilyakova. Model of heterogeneous interactions among complex agents. From a neural to a social network.

We describe a heterogeneous neural network where neurons interact by means various neurotransmitters. This feature enables exerting selective influence on neurons. We use this formalism as a basis for modeling interactions between agents in a social network in which two types of opposite activity are spreading. The main properties of agents and principles of activity spreading are defined. The classification of agents according to their parameters is represented..

Zahra Gharaee, Peter Gärdenfors and Magnus Johnsson. Online Recognition of Actions Involving Objects.

We present a system for on-line action recognition that merges the information analyses of two parallel subsystems running in parallel. The first subsystem recognizes what action is performed by using a hierarchical self-organizing map system that analyses the spatial trajectories of the agent’s movements. The second subsystem determines which object the agent acts on by applying a proximity measure. The system has been tested on actions that involve objects and it shows excellent performance..

Valentin Nepomnyashchikh. Strategies of animals in an unfamiliar environment.

Animals employ a set of behavioral strategies when face an unfamiliar environment. A strategy is defined as an movement sequence which repeats itself until replaced by some other behavior. Some strategies are common for very different organisms – from Invertebrates to humans. Another behavioral property of different animals is that they alternate among several strategies instead of employing only one particular strategy. The alternation is spontaneous: it is observed even in the absence of any changes of external stimuli. A simplest example of the alternation is a series of leftward turns ….

In this paper the cognitive architecture based on the Functional Systems Theory (TFS) by P.K.Anokhin is presented. This architecture based on the main notions of this theory: goal, result, anticipation of the result. This theory is described on physiological and informational level. The logical structure of this theory was analyzed and used for the control system of the purposeful behavior development. This control system contains the hierarchy of functional systems that organize the purposeful behavior. The control system was used for the agents modeling that are solving the foraging task. ….

Piotr Boltuc. Strong Semantic Computing — a BICA framework.

Standard computing will be characterized as a functional extension of syntax. This is based, partly, on Searle’s Chinese Room argument. Using BICA philosophy, in particular the claim of continuity between human-animal-robot cognitive architectures, we will define strong semantics as the ability of a cognitive architectures to consult cognitive maps, in particular phenomenal content map. The goal of strong semantic computing in autonomous robotics should be to ‘know what is going on’ before engaging in detailed logical analysis (it can be called Gestalt computing). Such computing is ….

This paper proposes a learning control system of modular systems with a large number of degrees of freedom based on joint learning of modules, starting with finding the common control rules for all modules and finishing with their subsequent specification in accordance with the ideas of the semantic probabilistic inference. With an interactive 3D simulator, a number of successful experiments were carried out to train three robot models: snake-like robot, multiped robot and trunk-like robot. Pilot studies have shown that the approach proposed is quite effective and can be used to control the ….

Sei Ueno, Masahiko Osawa, Michita Imai, Tsuneo Kato and Hiroshi Yamakawa. Reinforcement Learning Framework for Robots in the Real World that Extends Cognitive Architecture: Prototype Simulation Environment “Re:ROS”.

Reinforcement learning, which is a field of machine learning, is effective for behavior acquisition in robots. The extension of cognitive architecture with synchronous distributed systems is also effective for behavior acquisition. However, early work on the reinforcement learning software framework does not solve the difference between asynchrony and synchrony, and it cannot apply cognitive architecture with asynchronous distributed systems. Therefore, we applied asynchronous distributed systems to reinforcement learning modules to adapt to asynchrony and to extend cognitive architecture ….

Frank Krueger. The neurobiological architecture of trust.

Trust pervades nearly every social aspect of our daily lives; it penetrates all human interactions from personal relationships to organizational interactions. A plethora of studies have started to gain a deeper understanding of the inherent nature of trust by combining behavioral paradigms with functional neuroimaging, electroencephalographic, lesion, endocrinological, and genetic methods in both healthy and psychopathological populations. However, an overarching framework that integrates those separate findings from different levels into a conceptual framework characterizing trust behavior ….

Maksim Sharaev, Vyacheslav Orlov and Vadim Ushakov. Information transfer between rich-club structures in the human brain.

The performance of the human brain depends on how effectively its distinct regions communicate, especially the regions which are more strongly connected to each other than to other regions, or so called “rich-clubs”. The aim of the current work is to find a connectivity pattern between the three brain rich-club regions without any a priori assumptions on the underlying network architecture. Rich-clubs for the analysis were previously identified with structural MRI. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data from 25 healthy subjects (1000 time points from each one) was acquired and ….

Under the present-day global crisis, global economy regionalization and technological areas redistribution there has been seen an unprecedented uncertainty growth along with various risks, which makes it harder to take managing decisions. The scenario approach appears to be one of the most popular when it comes to modelling weakly-structured subject fields and complex problems. Fuzzy cognitive maps have good prospects in the field, as they enable us to describe both the structure and the dynamic of the area under study. This paper goes along the topical automated data science and focuses on ….

Sergey V. Kosikov, Viacheslav E. Wolfengagen and Larisa Yu. Ismailova. The presentation of evolutionary concepts in problems of information support to implement the best available technologies.

The paper considers an approach to solving the problem of supporting the semantic stability of information system (IS) objects. A set of IS objects is addressed as a semantic network consisting of concepts and frames. The interpretation that assigns intensional (meaning) and extensional (value) characteristics to network designs is connected to the constructions of the semantic network. The interpretation in the general case depends on the interpreting subject, time, context, which can be considered as parameters. The possibility to preset a consistent interpretation for a given semantic ….

Hidemoto Nakada and Yuuji Ichisugi Ichisugi. Context-Dependent Robust Text Recognition using Large-scale Restricted Bayesian Network.

We have been proposing a computational model of the cerebral cor- tex called BESOM, which models the cerebral cortex as restricted Bayesian net- works based on recent findings in the neuroscience area. Since BESOM is based on Bayesian network, it inherently allows bi-directional information flow, meaning that it can naturally merge information extracted from concrete data with highly- abstract prior knowledge. As an example of such kind of tasks, we report robust text recognition task with context information. We show that word spelling knowledge and word n-gram could be represented as a ….

Thomas Collins and Wei-Min Shen. A Robust Cognitive Architecture for Learning from Surprises.

Learning from surprises is a cornerstone for building bio-inspired cognitive architectures that can autonomously learn from interactions with their environments. However, distinguishing true surprises — from which useful information can be extracted to improve an agent’s world model — from environmental noise arising from uncertainty is a fundamental challenge. This paper proposes a new and robust approach for actively learning a predictive model of discrete, stochastic, partially-observable environments based on a concept called the Stochastic Distinguishing Experiment (SDE). SDEs are ….

We propose a novel discrete model of central pattern generators (CPG), neuronal ensembles generating rhythmic activity. The model emphasizes the role of nonsynaptic interactions and the diversity of neuronal phenotypes in nervous systems. Neurons in the model release different neurotransmitters into the shared extracellular space (ECS) so each neuron with the appropriate set of receptors can receive signals from other neurons. We consider neurons of different membrane phenotypes represented as finite-state machines functioning in discrete time steps. Discrete modeling is aimed to provide a ….

The paper considers the approach to solving the problem of preventing the information system vulnerability that arises due to the insertion and / or performance of a semantically incorrect script (XSS-vulnerability). The solution of this task suggests modeling the information exchange between active objects (agents), including the information containing code fragments. Modeling is supposed to be carried out within the framework of the basic applicative computing system, in which the code fragments can be modeled by applicative objects. An important part of the task is to check the …
