Integrated Cognition: Papers from the AAAI Symposium
Christian Lebiere, Paul S. Rosenbloom, Cochairs
Integrated cognition is concerned with consolidating the functionality and phenomena implicated in natural minds/brains and/or artificial cognitive systems (virtual humans, intelligent agents or intelligent robots). The focus of this symposium was on how the mind arises from the interaction of its constituent parts, and includes everything implicated in human-level performance in complex environments. This includes not only traditional cognitive aspects — such as planning and problem solving, knowledge representation and reasoning, language and interaction, reflection and learning — but also perception and control, personality and emotion, and motivation. It also includes not only integration across cognitive mechanisms, as is typical in work on cognitive architectures, but also across more abstract constraints on cognition. It furthermore includes work on across-level integration, including combining cognitive capabilities with aspects of lower levels, whether computational or neural; as well as integrating in aspects of higher levels, whether cognitive applications or the social band from Newell's time scales.
