Morphological Computing in Cognitive Systems is an area of research at the Department of Cognition and Communication, with comparative studies of cognitive mechanisms in natural and artificial systems.
Morcom @ COGS project investigates cognitive systems as information processing mechanisms of different complexity, with cognitive computation models based on physical (morphological) computation. The goal is to learn from nature how to better handle the complexity and the large amounts of data in a robust and efficient manner. The project builds on a framework of info-computational naturalism in which information is understood as a structure and computation as its dynamics. Cognition is a process that living organisms use to stay alive as individuals and species, while artificial computational systems use cognitive capacities in order to efficiently produce meaningful behaviour. Within the project, we study a generalized concept of computation as morphological process - a process of self-organization of information in a cognitive agent, natural or artificial.
