Concurrency does not require multiple CPUs, since enduring process records in memory allow a paused process to continue to inﬂuence running processes through the latter’s memory accesses. However, insofar as a computer has sensors and other interfaces connected with the environment there will be many concurrent processes not wholly under the control of the computer, interacting partly as a result of external interrupts.
B) The agent is controlled by a 5-node (3 interneuron, 2 motor) CTRNN. of these systems, characterizing the structure of interactions between components in terms of information flow [11,18,9]. However, work in this vein has thus far been of a very preliminary nature. For example, studies have characterized the average strength of interactions between components but not their detailed time course, and the behaviors studied so far have been limited to simple kinds of object tracking. This paper aims to extend this line of work by formulating a novel toolset for analyzing the information dynamics of embodied systems, and by demonstrating its application to a previously developed model of relational categorization .
