A Survey of Cognitive and Agent Architectures

The objective of this document(*) is to provide some rational, structured access to an analysis of cognitive and agent architectures (for more information on accessing the document, see the Reader's Guide). Twelve architectures have been used for this preliminary analysis representing a wide range of current architectures in artificial intelligence (AI). The aim of the project is to facilitate both an understanding of current architectures and provide insight to the development of future, improved intelligent agent architectures. This work was based on publications from 1992 and before and has not been authorized by the researchers responsible for particular architectures (see DISCLAIMER for additional information).
