My focus of the interest is the development of the adaptive autonomous agent which survive in the various environment. Survival is a fundamental problem of biological autonomous agents, including human beings. Therefore, the treatment of survival as the research topic is not only in the cognitive-developmental robotics, but also lay among broad fields like animal behavior, control theory, neuroscience, nutrient science, psychology, and philosophy. In this Ph.D. studentship, I will focus on the deep predictive processing agent that is composed of deep generative models and planning process. In particular, I will extend previous methods to treat interoceptive signals to control the behavior. I am going to explore the possibility of the use of our model in the field of computational psychiatry through the analysis of the model.
