Concurrent Execution in a Cognitive Architecture


Many human activities happen in parallel. People read while eating, talk over a phone while walking, and steer their cars while pushing the gas pedal. Therefore, cognitive architectures, as computational theories of human cognition, should also have facilities to support this type of capability. In this paper, we introduce extensions to our architecture, ICARUS, that support concurrent execution. We also provide some preliminary observations from our recent experiments.
