Tutorial on Embodiment

2. Traditional Artificial Intelligence, its Successes and Problems


We start this chapter by discussing two important aspects of studying intelligence: the synthetic methodology and the frame of reference problem. This is followed by a section about successes and problems of traditional Artificial Intelligence. This will set the ground for the "embodied turn" which is the topic of the rest of the tutorial. The online lecture by Rolf Pfeifer held in the context of ShanghAI lectures 2009 nicely complements the text.
