Questions for SSE
- How hard is it to translate the way a current state-of-the-art robot is programmed into the framework described here?
- If very different programming principles are used, why is this? Is there evidence that a strategy along the lines described here would inevitably fail when applied to a complex, unpredictable situation like playing football?
If the strategies used by today’s robots can be related to the type of ‘multiple reflex’ approach advocated here, then it would be interesting to trace the rise of $n$ over time as more complex robots have been developed. Assuming the same thing could be done with animals (and plants), it would be interesting to compare the two plots.
