Drescher G. L. (1987) A Mechanism for Early Piagetian Learning. In: AAAI'87 Proceedings of the sixth National conference on Artificial intelligence. AAAI Press: 290–294. Fulltext at
I propose a mechanism to model aspects of Piagetian development in infants. The mechanism combines a powerful empirical learning technique with an unusual facility for constructing novel elements of representation-- elements designating states that are not mere logical combinations of other represented states. I sketch how this mechanism might recapitulate the infant's gradual recognition that there exist physical objects that persist even when the infant does not perceive them. I also report results of a preliminary, partial implementation.
