From implicit skills to explicit knowledge: a bottom-up model of skill learning
TLDR
This model is formed by integrating connectionist, reinforcement, and symbolic learning methods to perform on-line reactive learning, and adopts a two-level dual-representation framework (Sun, 1995), with a combination of localist and distributed representation. Expand
The importance of cognitive architectures: an analysis based on CLARION
  • R. Sun
  • Computer Science
  • J. Exp. Theor. Artif. Intell.
  • 1 June 2007
TLDR
In this paper, discussions of issues and challenges in developing cognitive architectures will be undertaken, and an example cognitive architecture (CLARION) will be described. Expand
The Cambridge Handbook of Computational Psychology
  • R. Sun
  • Psychology, Computer Science
  • 28 April 2008
TLDR
This book is a definitive reference source for the growing, increasingly more important, and interdisciplinary field of computational cognitive modeling, that is, computational psychology, and substantiates this approach through overviews and many examples. Expand
The interaction of the explicit and the implicit in skill learning: a dual-process approach.
TLDR
The authors argue for an integrated model of skill learning that takes into account both implicit and explicit processes, and argue for a bottom-up approach (first learning implicit knowledge and then explicit knowledge) in the integrated model. Expand
Robust Reasoning: Integrating Rule-Based and Similarity-Based Reasoning
  • R. Sun
  • Mathematics, Computer Science
  • Artif. Intell.
  • 1 June 1995
TLDR
It is demonstrated that combining rules and similarities can result in more robust reasoning models, and many seemingly disparate patterns of commonsense reasoning are actually different manifestations of the same underlying process and can be generated using the integrated architecture, which captures the underlying process to a large extent. Expand
Desiderata for cognitive architectures
This article addresses issues in developing cognitive architectures—generic computational models of cognition. Cognitive architectures are believed to be essential in advancing understanding of theExpand
Duality of the Mind
Motivational Representations within a Computational Cognitive Architecture
  • R. Sun
  • Psychology, Computer Science
  • Cognitive Computation
  • 4 February 2009
TLDR
This paper hypothesizes the need for implicit drive representations, as well as explicit goal representations, to make cognitive architectural models more comprehensive and provide deeper explanations of psychological processes. Expand
Incubation, insight, and creative problem solving: a unified theory and a connectionist model.
TLDR
A unified framework for understanding creative problem solving, namely, the explicit-implicit interaction theory is proposed, which represents an initial step in the development of process-based theories of creativity encompassing incubation, insight, and various other related phenomena. Expand
