Specification of a Test Environment and Performance Measures for Perturbation-Tolerant Cognitive Agents

Michael L. Anderson

In this paper I propose a flexible method of characterizing a test environment such that its environmental complexity, information density, variability and volatility can be easily measured. This allows one to determine the task performance of a cognitive agent as a function of such measures, and therefore permits derivative measures of the perturbation tolerance of cognitive agents — that is, their ability to cope with a complex and changing environment.
