Doing more with simulators
Robot simulators are faster and more economical than real physical robots. Any simulation can be thought of as 2 coupled Turing machines, one representing the robot (i.e., Asa H software plus any pre and post processors) and the other representing the environment. (See my blogs of 7 Jan 2015 and 23 June 2015) I have been recording the environment's response during my embodied robot concept learning experiments, i.e., the work described in the blogs of 1 Oct. 2015 and 5 Nov. 2015. I can now use these recordings as the case base for a case-based reasoner which serves as a virtual robot's environment.
