A cognitive architecture is presented, which combines insights from artificial intelligence with cognitive psychology, biology, and linguistics. Using a Super Mario clone, we equipped the simulated agents with (i) motivational behavioral systems, (ii) reasoning and planning capabilities, (iii) event-based schema learning and sensorimotor exploration, and (iv) speech comprehension and generation mechanisms. The motivational system activates goal events to maintain internal homeostasis. To invoke… Expand
