This final report describes a novel biologically-inspired cognitive architecture. The systems level architecture described in this report was inspired by Simmons and Barsalou 2003, with psychologically-inspired additions proposed by Breazeal et al 2005, augmented by key insights from developmental psychology Smith, 2005. A cognitive agent will have multiple modality-specific systems, including sensory systems e.g., vision, audition, touch, a motor system, an emotional system, and a cognitive system. As a system perceives its external world and internal mental states, feature systems will represent these experiences in the relevant perceptual modalities, and a hierarchical system of neurally-inspired association areas will capture them, so that they can be reenacted or simulated in the future. These perceptually grounded representations guide the intelligent and social operations of agents.
