Paul Rosenbloom: “Towards a 50 msec Cognitive Cycle in a Graphical Architecture”

Speaker: Paul Rosenbloom
Host: 11th International Conferenct on Cognitive Modeling (ICCM 2012)

Achieving a 50 msec cognitive cycle in any sufficiently sophisticated cognitive architecture can be a significant challenge. Here an investigation is begun into how to do this within a recently developed graphical architecture that is based on factor graphs (with the summary product algorithm) and piecewise continuous functions. Results are presented from three optimizations that leverage the structure of factor graphs to reduce the number of message cycles required per cognitive cycle.
