  title={Desiderata for cognitive architectures},
  author={R. Sun},

This article addresses issues in developing cognitive architectures—generic computational models of cognition. Cognitive architectures are believed to be essential in advancing understanding of the mind, and therefore, developing cognitive architectures is an extremely important enterprise in cognitive science. The article proposes a set of essential desiderata for developing cognitive architectures. It then moves on to discuss in detail some of these desiderata and their associated concepts… Expand

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
Conclusion Cognition without Architectures: the Semantic Ambiguity between Cognitive Models and Architectures
    OVERVIEW Interfacing cognitive architectures with virtual agents is still in its infancy and remains an open teleological question. However, we hope that this book encourages readers to seriouslyExpand
    Author ' s personal copy Memory systems within a cognitive architecture
    This article addresses the division of memory systems in relation to an overall cognitive architecture. As understanding the architecture is essential to understanding the mind, developingExpand
    A Gauntlet for Evaluating Cognitive Architectures
    We present a set of phenomena that can be used for evaluating cognitive architectures that aim at being designs for intelligent systems. To date, we know of few architectures that address more than aExpand
    Autonomous Learning in Psychologically-Oriented Cognitive Architectures: A Survey
    Abstract This survey paper discusses the topic of autonomous learning in psychologically-oriented cognitive architectures and reviews some of the most popular cognitive architectures used inExpand
    Memory-Centred Architectures: Perspectives on Human-Level Cognitive Competencies
    TLDR
    This paper seeks to describe what a cognitive architecture based on this perspective must involve, and initiates an exploration into how humanlevel cognitive competencies can be accounted for in such a low-level framework. Expand
    Theoretical status of computational cognitive modeling Action
    This article explores the view that computational models of cognition may constitute valid theories of cognition, often in the full sense of the term ‘‘theory”. In this discussion, this articleExpand
    Psychologically realistic cognitive agents: taking human cognition seriously
    TLDR
    The model captures many psychological quasi-laws concerning categorisation, induction, uncertain reasoning, decision-making, and so on, which indicates human-like characteristics beyond what other models have been shown to be capable of. Expand
    Chapter 1 Introduction to Cognitive Systems
    The chapter reviews some historical and recent trends in understanding natural and developing artificial cognitive systems. One of the fundamental concepts of cognitive science, i.e. mentalExpand
    Reasoning with heuristics and induction: An account based on the CLARION cognitive architecture
    • R. Sun, S. Hélie
    • Computer Science
    • The 2012 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN)
    • 2012
    TLDR
    This paper addresses criticisms of a well established cognitive architecture, CLARION, and extracting its core theory to explain a wide range of reasoning (and other) data, and provides principled, almost parameter-free explanations for psychological “laws” of plausible reasoning. Expand
