Book cover: The Playful MachineThe Playful Machine
by - Springer ,
The book provides answers by developing a general principle - homeokinesis, the dynamical symbiosis between brain, body and environment -that is shown to drive robots to self-determined, individual development in a playful and embodiment-related way.
