Paul Rosenbloom: “Combining Procedural and Declarative Knowledge in a Graphical Architecture”

August 7, 2010 | Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA

Speaker: Paul Rosenbloom, ICT
Host: International Conference on Cognitive Modeling 2010

A prototypical cognitive architecture defines a memory architecture embodying forms of both procedural and declarative memory, plus their interaction. Reengineering such a dual architecture on a common foundation of graphical models enables a better understanding of both the substantial commonalities between procedural and declarative memory and the subtle differences that endow each with its own special character. It also opens the way towards blended capabilities that go beyond existing architectural memories.
