CAAM - Special Issue 2016 : Special Issue on Cognitive Architectures for Artificial Minds - Cognitive Systems Research
Call For Papers
The design and adaptation of Cognitive Architectures (CA) is a wide and active area of research in Cognitive Science, Artificial Intelligence and, more recently, in the area of Computational Neuroscience. Cognitive architectures have been historically introduced i) to capture, at the computational level, the invariant mechanisms of human cognition, including those underlying the functions of control, learning, memory, adaptivity, perception and action and ii) to reach human level intelligence, also called General Artificial Intelligence, by means of the realization of artificial artifacts built upon them.
During the last decades many cognitive architectures have been realized and, agents based on such infrastructures, have been widely tested in several cognitive tasks involving learning, perception, reasoning, action execution, selective attention, recognition etc.
This special issue is intended to provide a fair overview of the research being carried out in the interdisciplinary area of cognitively inspired AI systems designed and integrated with existing or novel CA. Both papers presenting theoretical and applied research contribution in the field are welcome.
