Authors' Response: What to Do Next: Applying Flexible Learning Algorithms to Develop Constructivist Communication

Constructivist Foundations 9 (2):218-222 (2014)


Upshot: We acknowledge that our model can be implemented with different reinforcement learning algorithms. Subsystem formation has been successfully demonstrated on the basal level, and in order to show full subsystem formation in the communication system at least both intentional utterances and acceptance/rejection need to be implemented. The comments about intrinsic vs extrinsic rewards made clear that this distinction is not helpful in the context of the constructivist paradigm but rather needs to be replaced by a critical reflection on whether one has truly created autopoietic agents or just an engineering system
