This paper discusses essential motivational representations necessary for a comprehensive computational cognitive architecture. It hypothesizes the need for implicit drive representations, as well as explicit goal representations. Drive representations consist of primary drives—both low-level primary drives (concerned mostly with basic physiological needs) and high-level primary drives (concerned more with social needs), as well as derived (secondary) drives. On the basis of drives, explicit… Expand

TLDR
A general framework based on the Clarion cognitive architecture is outlined that emphasises the interaction amongst action selection, motivation, and metacognition. Expand

MLECOG: Motivated Learning Embodied Cognitive Architecture
TLDR
This paper describes how the new architecture is related to major trends in cognitive architectures that move toward greater autonomy, motivations, and the creation of goals and how its functional blocks interact to self-organize and to refine their operations. Expand
Building a Motivational Subsystem for the Cognitive Systems Toolkit
Motivations and emotions are intrinsically embedded in animal cognition and behavior, particularly in humans. They are responsible for supporting decision making, stimulating different behaviors suchExpand

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
An intrinsically-motivated schema mechanism to model and simulate emergent cognition
TLDR
An approach to simulate the early mechanisms of emergent cognition based on theories of enactive cognition and on constructivist epistemology is introduced, arguing that this initial autonomous mechanism provides a basis for implementing autonomously developing cognitive systems. Expand

TLDR
It turns out that no special emotional subsystem is required in an intelligent system and this framework clarifies and refines ordinary concepts of emotions, attitudes, moods, character traits, and other aspects of mind so far not studied in Artificial Intelligence. Expand

This model is formed by integrating connectionist, reinforcement, and symbolic learning methods to perform on-line reactive learning, and adopts a two-level dual-representation framework (Sun, 1995), with a combination of localist and distributed representation. Expand
