Abstract:

DUCS is an experimental multi-level architecture that provides a distributed representation for frame-like concept structures. The ultimate goal of this research is to develop a powerful short term memory that can construct and manipulate concepts rapidly. Such a memory could plan an important role in neural network models of higher level cognitive phenomena such as language understanding or problem solving. Keywords Artificial intelligence, Machine learning, Connectionism, Short-term memory, Distributed representation, Frames.
