Can robots predict the future?
Many robots need to predict the future. Consider path planning in order to safely navigate to a goal position, or the more fundamental problem of obstacle avoidance which implicitly anticipates the undesirable consequence of a collision. There are many ways we can build anticipation into robots, but the one I would like to discuss in this talk is robots with simulation-based internal models. Illustrated with results from recent experiments I will show how such internal models can improve safety or fault detection in robots swarms, or allow us to build robots with simple ethical behaviours. Perhaps this approach might open a path to robots with artificial theory of mind?
