This paper describes our work on integrating distributed, concurrent control in a cognitive architecture, and using it to classify perceived behaviors. We are implementing the Robot Schemas (RS) language in Soar. RS is a CSP-type programming language for robotics that controls a hierarchy of concurrently executing schemas. The behavior of every RS schema is defined using port automata. This provides precision to the semantics and also a constructive means of reasoning about the behavior and… Expand
Progress in building a cognitive vision system
TLDR
The research hypothesis of this work is that the movements of the robot's cameras are only those that are necessary to build a sufficiently accurate world model for the robot’s current goals, so this approach trades model accuracy for speed. Expand
40 years of cognitive architectures: core cognitive abilities and practical applications
TLDR
This survey describes a variety of methods and ideas that have been tried and their relative success in modeling human cognitive abilities, as well as which aspects of cognitive behavior need more research with respect to their mechanistic counterparts and thus can further inform how cognitive science might progress.

A Review of 40 Years of Cognitive Architecture Research: Core Cognitive Abilities and Practical Applications
TLDR
A broad overview of the last 40 years of research on cognitive architectures, describing a variety of methods and ideas that have been tried and their relative success in modeling human cognitive abilities, as well as which aspects of cognitive behavior need more research with respect to their mechanistic counterparts and thus can further inform how cognitive science might progress.

Problems of implementing the visual systems of robots for indeterminate media
TLDR
Trends in the use of vision subsystems in modern robotic systems--in particular, in household robots that function in an indeterminate medium are discussed, and the main limitations of image-analysis methods used in mobile robots are established. Expand

A formal model of computation for sensory-based robotics
TLDR
A special model of computation is constructed, called RS (robot schemas), with properties designed to facilitate sensory-based robot programming, and offers the potential to construct robot task representations which are easy to use and concise, and which execute in an efficient manner. Expand
Designing a Robot Cognitive Architecture with Concurrency and Active Perception
TLDR
This paper examines two major inadequacies of current cognitive architectures for robotics: the absence of support for true concurrency and for active cooperation. Expand

TLDR
A concurrent-process based representation is developed which represents both the plan and the uncertain and dynamic environment in which the plan operates and a methodology for analyzing the behavior of this interacting system of plan and world. Expand

On the Emergence of Intelligent Global Behaviors from Simple Local Actions
TLDR
This paper examines the algebraic structure of a system's actions and finds that these actions often possess a self-similar local neighborhood structure that permits analysis and synthesis to be performed locally yet produce global, intelligent behaviours. Expand

TLDR
SOAR, an implemented proposal for a foundation for a system capable of general intelligent behavior, is presented and its organizational principles, the system as currently implemented, and demonstrations of its capabilities are described. Expand
On the emergence of intelligent global behaviours from simple local actions
TLDR
It is found that a system's actions often possess a self-similar local neighbourhood structure that permits analysis and synthesis to be performed locally and yet produces global intelligent behaviours. Expand
