ISEEE 2014 Logo
Sun Zhe

Dr. Student Sun Zhe was invited to the ISEEE 2014, the International Conference on Information Science and Electronics Engineering. He gave a talk with the title "Emergence of Intelligent Behavior From a Minimalistic Stochastic Model for Robots" (OHPs, pdf, 3.7Mb).

Also, his talk has been accepted to be published on the proceedings of the conference, a peer-reviewed publication affiliated to IEEE (link). The study he presented is a very simple theoretical and simulation-based study in which a markov chan is used to create a transition Matrix to guide a robot in a Maze. The Robot first receives a training session where the user drives it within a series of mazes. During this phase the various robot sensory states are treated as a markov-chain to fill up a Transition Matrix bi-dimensional array. Then, the robot is let alone to drive in an unknow maze. He demonstrated that the robot -without any knowledge of the its position or exit location, nor with any empirical instructions or algorithm- can exit the maze in a minimal time. This effect is showing that a purely stochastic approach to learning, can lead to the emergence of what it looks an "intelligent behaviour", with an extremely simple algorithm, spontaneously and without any complex set of instructions. Here are pictures taken at the congress pict, pict, pict.
