Preface

Maja Mataric

This symposium studies the role of embodiment in both scaling up control and grounding cognition. We explore ways of extending the existing typically low-level sub-cognitive systems such as autonomous robots and agents, as well as grounding more abstract typically disembodied cognitive systems. In that effort we draw from AI, ethology, neuroscience, and other sources in order to focus on the implications of embodiment in cognition and action, and explore work that has been done in the areas of applying physical metaphors to more abstract higher-level cognition.
