Embodied artificial intelligence is based on the notion that cognition and action emerge from interactions between brain, body and environment. This chapter sketches a set of foundational principles that might be useful for understanding the emergence (“discovery”) of intelligence in biological and artificial embodied systems. Special emphasis is placed on information as a crucial resource for organisms and on information theory as a promising descriptive and predictive framework linking morphology, perception, action and neural control.
