Abstract

A theory of the development of activity in autonomous agents was developed. This theory was based on means-ends analysis planning because of its developmental plausability and declarative, compositional nature of its representations. The motivational system used was based on a combination of motivational factors like hunger and curiosity, which were modeled numerically. The system was tested on simulated domains and it was shown that it effectively managed the tradeoff between exploration and exploitation.
