The LA Machine Learning meetup is coming to our office on Tuesday evening, April 24th, for a talk about Cognitive Architectures for Robotics by Matt Chapman, assistant organizer of the LA Robotics meetup.
From the meetup announcement:
The Brain Emulating Cognition and Control Architecture (BECCA) is a software framework for feature creation, reinforcement learning and action selection, designed for especially robotics, but is also more broadly applicable. It’s currently implemented in MATLAB, with a port to Python underway, and has demonstrated some very basic ability to allow simple robotics hardware to learn basic behaviors given a defined goal or task.
This presentation will include some demos of capabilities, a review of the published literature, and an introduction to hacking the code base and creating your own BECCA Agents and Tasks.
