This paper introduces a new model for robot behavior categorization. Correlation based adaptive resonance theory (CobART) networks are integrated hierarchically in order to develop an adequate categorization, and to elicit various behaviors performed by the robot. The proposed model is developed by adding a second layer CobART network which receives first layer CobART network categories as an input, and back-propagates the matching information to the first layer networks. The first layer CobART networks categorize self-behavior data of a robot or an object in the environment while the second layer CobART network categorizes the robot's behavior with respect to its effect on the object. Experiments show that the proposed model generates reasonable categorization of behaviors being tested. Moreover, it can learn different forms of the behaviors, and it can detect the relations between them. In essence, the model has an expandable architecture and it contains reusable parts. The first layer CobART networks can be integrated with other CobART networks for another categorization task. Hence, the model presents a way to reveal all behaviors performed by the robot at the same time.

Behavior Categorization Using Correlation Based Adaptive Resonance Theory
YAVAŞ, mustafa; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur (2009-06-26)
This paper presents a new method of categorizing robot behavior, which is based on a variation of Correlation Based Adaptive Resonance Theory (CobART) learning. CobART is a type of ART 2 network and its main contribution is the usage of correlation analysis methods for category matching. This study uses derivation based correspondence and Euclidian distance as correlation analysis methods for behavior categorization. Tests show that the proposed method generates better results than ART 2 categorization even...
Simple and complex behavior learning using behavior hidden Markov model and CobART
Seyhan, Seyit Sabri; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Yavaş, Mustafa (2013-03-01)
This paper proposes behavior learning and generation models for simple and complex behaviors of robots using unsupervised learning methods. While the simple behaviors are modeled by simple-behavior learning model (SBLM), complex behaviors are modeled by complex-behavior learning model (CBLM) which uses previously learned simple or complex behaviors. Both models include behavior categorization, behavior modeling, and behavior generation phases. In the behavior categorization phase, sensory data are categoriz...

In this thesis, behavior learning and generation models are proposed for simple and complex behaviors of robots using unsupervised learning methods. Simple behaviors are modeled by simple-behavior learning model (SBLM) and complex behaviors are modeled by complex-behavior learning model (CBLM) which uses previously learned simple or complex behaviors. Both models have common phases named behavior categorization, behavior modeling, and behavior generation. Sensory data are categorized using correlation based...
