When developing autonomous agents, the problem of motivation poses one of the key questions. Following a bionic approach inspired by psychoanalysis, a multi-level motivational system to enable autonomous agents to pursue their own agenda and cope with their internal and external environment is presented. Considering embodiment, both homeostatic (extrinsic)(More)
The examination of AGI agents is an interdisciplinary challenge. This is particularly the case for their foundations, assumedly (in compliance with Damasio) drives and emotions. We demonstrate how these foundations of a human-like control system are tested using simplified exemplary cases as test-specifications. After showing how we model the required(More)
Complexity of technology is constantly increasing; for the field of automation this means that economic considerations dictate a need for corresponding measures. Artificial intelligence boasts noteworthy successes in this area; however, its achievements appear modest when compared to the faculties of human intelligence. This paper will demonstrate that a(More)
This paper is about the mechanisms of logical reasoning which would fit into a cognitive architecture based on the concepts of psychoanalytic metapsychology. As the results have to be based on a bionic approach beyond neurological findings a turn back to the roots of logic is required. According to psychoanalytical theory word presentations are the base of(More)
To manage the increasing volume of data per time unit, achievements in information processing and artificial intelligence were made. But still the complex processes of human perception and scenario recognition are not fully understood and still far from implementation in technical applications. The contribution of this article to the field of cognitive(More)
When using the human mind as a template for artificial intelligence systems, principles of human thinking have to be modeled. One such very important principle is defense. Hence, in this article we describe a formalism to implement psychoanalytic defense mechanisms in artificial intelligence systems. They can be seen as transformations. A tuple<inf>1</inf>(More)
Action planning methods for autonomous agents are necessary to successfully perform tasks and purposely achieve goals within the agent's environment. Based on already existing knowledge about the environment, action sequences are built. Development of actions is important for autonomous systems because the possibility of action generation determines the(More)

Computational models of the human decision making process have already enabled several insights and applications. Nevertheless, such models have only recently begun to consider that simply modelling rational decision making was insufficient to represent human behavior. Recent efforts have started to consider this factor by utilizing computational models of(More)
