    • Autonomous Discovery of Motor Constraints in an Intrinsically-Motivated Vocal Learner 

      Acevedo Valle, Juan Manuel; Angulo Bahón, Cecilio; Moulin-Frier, Clément (2017-04-28)
      Article
      Open Access
      This work introduces new results on the modeling of early-vocal development using artificial intelligent cognitive architectures and a simulated vocal tract. The problem is addressed using intrinsically-motivated learning ...
    • Efficient Predictive Control for polytopic systems: application to the four-tank system 

      Acevedo Valle, Juan Manuel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-06)
      Master thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      The present work proposes to develop a Fault Tolerant Control strategy based on Robust Efficient Predictive Control for non-linear systems that can be modeled using a polytopic model. The proposed Efficient Predictive ...
    • Multivariate Regression with Incremental Learning of Gaussian Mixture Models 

      Acevedo Valle, Juan Manuel; Trejo Ramírez, Karla Andrea; Angulo Bahón, Cecilio (IOS Press, 2017)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Within the machine learning framework, incremental learning of multivariate spaces is of special interest for on-line applications. In this work, the regression problem for multivariate systems is solved by implementing ...
    • On dynamical systems for sensorimotor contingencies. A first approach from control engineering 

      Angulo Bahón, Cecilio; Acevedo Valle, Juan Manuel (IOS Press, 2017)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      According to the sensorimotor approach, cognition is constituted by regularities in the perceptual experiences of an active and situated agent. This perspective rejects traditional inner representational models, stressing ...
    • Predictive fault tolerant control for LPV systems using model reference 

      Acevedo Valle, Juan Manuel; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Tornil Sin, Sebastián; Witczak, Marcin; Rotondo, Damiano (International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC), 2015)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The present work proposes a Fault Tolerant Control (FTC) methodology for non-linear discrete-time systems that can be modeled as Linear Parameter Varying (LPV) systems. The proposed approach relies on the modeling of faults ...
    • Sensorimotor exploration: constraint awareness and social reinforcement in early vocal development 

      Acevedo Valle, Juan Manuel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-11-06)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      This research is motivated by the benefits that knowledge regarding early development in infants may provide to different fields of science. In particular, early sensorimotor exploration behaviors are studied in the framework ...
    • Social reinforcement in artificial prelinguistic development : a study using intrinsically motivated exploration architectures 

      Acevedo Valle, Juan Manuel; Hafner, Verena V.; Angulo Bahón, Cecilio (2019-05-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      This work introduces an intrinsically motivated sensorimotor exploration architecture which considers social reinforcement and motor constraint awareness. The main objective is to study the influence of social interactions ...
    • The role of somatosensory models in vocal autonomous exploration 

      Acevedo Valle, Juan Manuel; Angulo Bahón, Cecilio; Moulin-Frier, Clément; Trejo Ramírez, Karla Andrea (2016-11)
      Conference lecture
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The present work focuses on two main objectives. Firstly, it highlights the relevance of studying the early stages of language development using machines as an approach to contribute to the future of speech recognizers and ...
