cognitive architecture

(architecture)
A computer architecure involving non-deterministic, multiple inference processes, as found in neural networks. Cognitive architectures model the human brain and contrast with single processor computers.

The term might also refer to software architectures, e.g. fuzzy logic.

John Laird, Christian Lebiere, and Paul Rosenbloom review the tradition of work on cognitive architectures and make initial steps toward formulating a "standard model of the mind" whose purpose is to provide a uniform reference for work on developing computational accounts of the mind across a variety of disciplines, including artificial intelligence, cognitive science, neuroscience, and robotics.

The project's goal is to build neuromorphic computing systems that use the same principles of computation and cognitive architectures as the brain.

Bear in mind that the data in this article are specific to the cognitive architectures of the individuals tested in this study; they should not be generalized.
Hogan further identifies three main sorts of cognitive architectures used by cognitive scientists--representational, connectionist, and neurobiological--and one "metalevel" of analysis (34), evolutionary theory, that attempts to integrate the various hypothesized structures and processes into a coherent phylogenetic account.
This issue gathered papers from representatives of four cognitive architectures -- Soar (Howes & Young, 1997), LICAI (Kitajima & Polson, 1997), executive-process/interactive control (EPIC; Kieras & Meyer, 1997), and ACT-rational (ACT-R; Anderson, Matessa, & Lebiere, 1997) -- and asked them to address practical human factors issues that arose in the context of human-computer interaction.
This does not mean that every discovery problem posed by a collection of possible cognitive architectures and assumptions A1 through A7 is solvable.

Our hypothesis is that cognitive architectures provide the appropriate computational abstraction for defining a standard model, although the standard model is not itself such an architecture.

Most cognitive architectures, including ours, are fired up for experiments, the experiments are run, and then they are shut down.
