We present a temporal reasoning system that can make accurate predictions for two classic interval estimation experiments by Rakitin et al. (1998) and Penney et al. (2000). The system is implemented as an additional module for ACT-R. In combination with ACT-R’s other mechanisms, it makes accurate predictions about experiments that go beyond just estimating time. We demonstrate this by… CONTINUE READING
