I was wondering if there is work on the emergence of time-related concepts, on the low-level representation of notions like before and after. I know, for example, that there is work on the emergence of spatial representation (similar to knn), or even communication* but time seems to be a tricky concept.
This has everything to do with the platform, i.e. the way that the representation would be coded in. We tend to favour ways that have some meaning or somehow mimic natural, well, yes, human structures, like the brain. I am not a neuroscientist and do not know that the sense of time looks like in humans, or if it is even present in other living beings.
Is there some work on the (emergence of the) representation of time in artificial agents?
