Artificial Intelligence - Cognitive Agent Interaction.


 A key assumption of cognitive science is the ambition to provide a unified theory of mind that reveals the qualitative form of human cognition and behavior.

Cognitive agents (or cognitive models) are cognitive theory applications.

These agents are computer simulations that can predict and explain human thought.

Cognitive agents must complete a real-world task that involves many different kinds of cognition, including interaction.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a method of simulating human intelligence.

These simulations aren't necessarily fully interactive or comprehensive.

An interactive cognitive agent is designed to cover all of the actions that a user engages in when using a current display-oriented interface.

Interactive cognitive agents try to think and behave like people, making them ideal candidates for surrogate users.

Noninteractive cognitive agents just provide a trace of the mind's cognitive steps, but interactive cognitive agents give more thorough and precise simulations.

This is accomplished through interactive cognitive agents engaging directly with the screen-as-world.

Models may now communicate with uninstrumented interfaces on both the computer where the model is executing and on distant machines.

Improved interaction not only supports a wider variety of activity, but it also improves the model's accuracy and representation of human actions on tasks that require interaction.

A cognitive architecture, knowledge, and a perception-motor module are the three components of an interactive cognitive agent.

Cognitive architectures are infrastructures that give a set of fixed computational processes that represent the fixed cognitive mechanisms that create behavior for all activities.

They give a mechanism to combine and apply cognitive science theory as a fixed set.

A cognitive model is generated when knowledge is added to a cognitive architecture.

To interact with the environment, the perception-motor module regulates visual and motor output.

Cognitive agents that are interactive can view the screen, push keys, and move and click the mouse.

Through their comprehensive coverage of theory and capacity to produce actions, interactive cognitive agents contribute to cognitive research, human-computer interaction, automation (interface engineering), education, and assistive technology.
