Logic, Self-awareness and Self-improvement: the Metacognitive Loop and the Problem of Brittleness
It is argued that equipping agents with a metacognitive loop can help to overcome the brittleness problem, and the metac cognitive loop and its relation to ongoing work on time-sensitive commonsense reasoning are detailed.

The results of several experiments demonstrating the efficacy of metacognition in improving the perturbation tolerance of reinforcement learners are presented, and a general theory of meetacognitive monitoring and control is discussed, in a form the authors call the metacognitive loop.
Nonmonotonicity and the Scope of Reasoning
A Logic for Characterizing Multiple Bounded Agents

- 1 December 2000
A meta-logic for characterizing the evolving internal reasoning of various families of agents as ongoing processes rather than as fixed sets of conclusions is described, which allows for useful and intuitively natural characterizations of such agents' reasoning abilities.
Reasoning situated in time I: basic concepts
Sittinguated logic is formulated, an approach to reasoning in which the formalism has a kind of real-time self-reference that affects the course of deduction itself, and some specific inference mechanisms for real- time default reasoning are suggested, notably a form of introspection relevant to default reasoning.

MIDCA 1.3 is presented, an implementation of this metacognitive, integrated, dual-cycle architecture whose function is to provide agents with a greater capacity for acting robustly in a dynamic environment and managing unexpected events.

Evolutionary and cognitive examples are used to motivate an approach to the brittleness problem and automated flexible cognition, centering on the notion of an anomaly as the key focus of processing.
The roots of self-awareness
In this paper we provide an account of the structural underpinnings of self-awareness. We offer both an abstract, logical account – by way of suggestions for how to build a genuinely self-referring…
