Our workshop could be considered as the continuation of a part of the symposium “Computing Nature” organized by Gordana Dodig – Crnkovic and Raffaela Giovagnoli in the AISB/IACAP World Congress 2012 and “Representation: Humans, Animals and Machines” in the AISB50 Convention at Goldsmith 2015. We would like to offer a further occasion to discuss the problem of “representation” in humans, other animals and machines. It is closely related to the question what capacities can be plausibly computed and what are the most promising approaches that try to solve the problem.
