LIDA: A Systems-level Architecture for Cognition, Emotion, and Learning

  title={LIDA: A Systems-level Architecture for Cognition, Emotion, and Learning},
  author={Stan Franklin and Tamas Madl and Sidney K. D'Mello and Javier Snaider},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Autonomous Mental Development},
We describe a cognitive architecture learning intelligent distribution agent (LIDA) that affords attention, action selection and human-like learning intended for use in controlling cognitive agents that replicate human experiments as well as performing real-world tasks. LIDA combines sophisticated action selection, motivation via emotions, a centrally important attention mechanism, and multimodal instructionalist and selectionist learning. Empirically grounded in cognitive science and cognitive… CONTINUE READING
