Flexible sequence learning in a SOM model of the mirror system

Abstract

We present initial work on a biologically and cognitively inspired model that may allow embodied agents to autonomously learn sequences of action primitives (forming an overall behaviour). Specifically, we combine a flexible model of sequence generation with a model of parietal mirror neuron activity. The main purpose is to illustrate that the approach is viable. Although further work is needed to improve the results sketched out here, the concept is sound and relevant both to efforts in modelling mirror neuron activity and enabling artificial embodied agents to autonomously learn sequences of action primitives.
