Perception of Modular Movement Primitives

In project C6, we will investigate if the movement primitive / sensorimotor primitive models (SMPs) from the previous funding periods can be hierarchically extended to enable the perception, prediction and control of activities composed of sequential actions, which are composed of movements.  Our best SMP models from the previous funding periods will be hierarchically composed in space and time by imbuing our sequencing approaches with semantic constraints. Steering such a model requires attentional control in naturalistic environments, which we will model jointly with project B3. Trained models will be evaluated with respect to their ability to generate believable activities, predict movement sequence continuations and respond human-like to sensory signal degradation.
