Can mental imagery be incorporated uniformly into a cognitive architecture by leveraging the mixed (relational and probabilistic) hybrid (discrete and continuous) processing supported by factor graphs? This article takes an initial step towards answering this question via an implementation in a graphical cognitive architecture of a version of the Eight Puzzle based on a hybrid function representation and a factor node optimized for object translation.
