Layered subsumption in intelligent material building systems
Paper i proceeding, 2014
The paper investigates how robust layered subsumption is acting both digitally and through functionality embodied in the material of a building system of architecture.
We describe a building system with embedded computational control over the building process, with the purpose of arguing how layered subsumption exists seamlessly shared between the digital, and the physical material of the system.
Roboticist Rodney A. Brooks argues, subsumption being a robust digital control system for artificial intelligence when being in interaction with the real world.
If a system using layered subsumption is able to modify its entire environment, we argue, that subsumption must be found embedded within the morphology and material of the environment.
