A partial taxonomy for cognitive maps is provided; the notions of NPN (Negative-Positive-Neural) logic, NPN relations, coupled-type neurons, and coupled-type neural networks are introduced, which lay out a framework for cognitive map modeling. Based on this framework, D-POOL, a cognitive-mapbased architecture for the coordination of distributed cooperative agents, is presented. D-POOL consists of a collection of distributed nodes. Each node is a cognitive-map-based metalevel system coupled with… CONTINUE READING
