Here are some additional material to supplement the courses on my main website. The first two are just a collection of resources for existing courses while the second two - Cognitive Robotics and Data Structures and Algorithms for Engineers - are new courses that I am teaching in Spring 2017 at Carnegie Mellon University Africa in Rwanda. Once these are complete, I will migrate the material to the main website.
- Algorithms and Data Structures (support material)
- Artificial Cognitive Systems (support material)
- Cognitive Robotics (course under development)
- Data Structures and Algorithms for Engineers (course under development)
The CINDY Cognitive Architecture. CINDY stands for Circular Network Dynamics. It is in its early state of development and is based on many other cognitive architectures, especially the iCub cognitive architecture which was never fully realized. The long-term goal is to design and implement an emergent artificial cognitive system that builds on the principles of growth and development through circular causality, drawing on many of the principles of the fields of Enaction, Systems Dynamics, and Second-order Cybernetics.
