Symbol-Anchoring in Cassie

Stuart C. Shapiro and Haythem O. Ismail

We have been engaged in a series of projects in which Cassie, the SNePS cognitive agent, has been incorporated into a hardware- or software-simulated cognitive robot. In this paper, we present an informal summary of our approach to anchoring the abstract symbolic terms that denote Cassie’s mental entities in the lowerlevel structures used by embodied-Cassie to operate in the real (or simulated) world. We discuss anchoring in the domains of: perceivable entities and properties, actions, time, and language.
