Studying a Brain Model based on Self-Simulation and Homeostasis
Homeostatic self-maintenance and motion generation in android experiments, which are capable of self-simulation. Specifically, we will construct a system that uses a camera mounted on a robot to learn human poses and generate imitations of those poses. Since the discovery of the mirror neural system, there has been a lot of research on imitation in brain science. Here, we will construct a new self-simulation function of the brain and build a new homeostatic model of the brain through imitation. (cf. the project Offloaded Agency)
