Presentations

Cogric was primarily a workshop, rather than a standard academic conference. The output of this workshop is different. The actual presentations are available to download below - please note that the copyright remains with the authors. Understandably, due to the nature of some work presented, e.g. containing pictures of minors, it was sensible not to display all the presentations. Please contact the authors directly if you wish to discuss anything related to the presentations.

The abstract of each presentation is available if you wish to browse before viewing each presentation. We hope the presentations give some flavour on the breadth and worth of the work presented at Cogric. The presentations include plenary talks, oral papers and posters. The Cogric organisers thank all the presenters.

When viewing the presentations, you may wish to consider some of the main themes that became apparent through the workshop: Morphology, Information theoretic, Attention, Working memory, Emotions, Embodiment, Robotics as tools and/or platforms, Feedback/feedforward, Consciousness, Variety of representations, Learning and development, Interaction and Communication, and Structural properties of neural systems.

Some general conclusions could be drawn from the presentations:

  • Don’t make cognition hard for ourselves
  • Models are useful, but the mind is not so clear-cut
  • Human cognition is a good model, but desired behaviour may be achieved by other models
  • Increasingly powerful tools assist in advancing cognitive robotics, e.g., computational power, engineering materials and neurological understanding.
