Studying the Role of Embodiment in Cognition

M. Mataric

This paper raises the question of the connection between embodiment and higher-level cognition which has been eloquently addressed before, but has not yet received much focus in the AI community. The paper then proceeds to break the question down into subparts, and address how each can be approached and studied. Finally, the paper briefly overviews two directions of our work: group behavior and imitative behavior, and describes their relation to the issue of embodiment and cognition.
