Talk: Understanding and modelling movements
Understanding and modelling movements; an overview and specific approaches
The movements of vertebrates animals inspire us with stunning complexity and beauty. Yet our understanding of the underlying mechanisms are limited. The topic is introduced with an overview of current models and hypotheses. In particular, the concepts of primitives, composition, co-articulation and decomposition are dicussed. Following, specific approaches to modelling stability, learning and movement decomposition are presented. The speakers intend to encourage a discussion over the biological significance and implications of current models.
