Abstract : We propose the Small Loop Problem as a challenge for biologically inspired cognitive architectures. This challenge consists of designing an agent that would autonomously organize its behavior through interaction with an initially unknown environment that offers basic sequential and spatial regularities. The Small Loop Problem demonstrates four principles that we consider crucial to the implementation of emergent cognition: environment-agnosticism, self-motivation, sequential regularity learning, and spatial regularity learning. While this problem is still unsolved, we report partial solutions that suggest that its resolution is realistic.
