Paul: Rosenbloom: “Extending Mental Imagery in Sigma”

December 8, 2012 | Oxford, UK

Speaker: Paul Rosenbloom
Host: The Fifth Conference on Artificial General Intelligence

Abstract: This article presents new results on implementing mental imagery within the Sigma cognitive architecture. Rather than amounting to a distinct module, mental imagery is based on the same primitive, hybrid mixed, architectural mechanisms as Sigma’s other cognitive capabilities. The work here demonstrates the creation and modification of compound images, the transformation of individual objects within such images, and the extraction of derived information from these compositions.
