How do we approach intrinsic motivation computationally? : a commentary on: What is intrinsic motivation? A typology of computational approaches. by Pierre-Yves Oudeyer and Frederic Kaplan

  • What is the energy function guiding behavior and learningµ Representationbased approaches like maximum entropy, generative models, sparse coding, or slowness principles can account for unsupervised learning of biologically observed structure in sensory systems from raw sensory data. However, they do not relate to behavior. Behavior-based approaches like reinforcement learning explain animal behavior in well-described situations. However, they rely on high-level representations which they cannot extract from raw sensory data. Combinations of multiple goal functions seems the methodology of choice to understand the complexity of the brain. But what is the set of possible goals. ...
