Intelligent Architectures
Briefly, while at times it appears that I am developing many architectures for many purposes, many architectures are partial instantiations of a larger "theoretical" architecture. A uniting principle is the ongoing development of an architecture for cognition and affect that makes use of a BDI (Belief-Desire-Intention) architecture developed initially in Germany to model the reasoning of a five year old child. This has been subsequently developed by one of my research students as a Perception-Belief-Desire-Intention architecture. I am now subsuming that architecture into a more abstract one that uses a motivational construct as the basis for what Baars calls Global Workspace. The motivational construct in its fullest is a specific architecture in a specific configuration. The same specific architecture in a different configuration is a different motivational construct. Alternative behaviour models for large-scale tasks are yet further motivational constructs. Smaller (lightweight) versions of the construct define the selection of a specific behaviour or action (an intention). Intermediate instantiations relate to goals, and desires. The later papers describe this more fully. Other aspects relate to theories associated with cognitive architectures.
