Dynamics, Morphology, and Materials in The Emergence of Cognition
Early approaches to understanding intelligence have assumed that intelligence
can be studied at the level of algorithms which is why for many years the major
tool of artificial intelligence (AI) researchers has been the computer (this has
become known as classical AI). As researchers started to build robots they
realized that the hardest issues in the study of intelligence involve perception
and action in the real world. An entire new research field called "embodied
intelligence" (or "New AI", "embodied cognitive science") emerged and "embodimen
t" became the new buzzword. In the meantime there has been a lot of research
employing robots for the study of intelligence. However, embodiment has not been
taken really seriously. Hardly any studies deal with morphology (i.e. shape),
