Abstract:

This chapter treats the architecture, which is the fixed structure that provides the frame within which cognitive processing in the mind takes place. It describes what an architecture is and how it enters into cognitive theories of the mind. It concentrates on symbolic architectures, the family that includes the architectures central to computer science. It does not treat foundational matters or connectionist architectures. After treating in detail the general requirements of a cognitive architecture, it uses Act and Soar, two architectures relevant to the study of human cognition, to illustrate matters in detail. sdw
