Berry Eaters: Learning Colour Concepts with Template Based Evolution

Chris Headleand, Llyr Ap Cynedd and William J. Teahan

Abstract (Excerpt)

In this paper, we propose an approach inspired by Gärdenfors conceptual spaces, to represent concepts (specifically colour) in a situated embodied agent. Through this we also extend the work of Braitenberg by proposing an alternate vehicle capable of recognising colour concepts. Furthermore, we demonstrate how it can learn to distinguish between different colours by evolving our vehicle's conceptual space using Template Based Evolution.
