  • Cognition: Agents With Beliefs

    In this book, Whitman Richards offers a novel and provocative proposal for understanding decision making and human behavior. Building on Valentino Braitenberg's famous "vehicles," Richards describes a collection of mental organisms that he calls "daemons" -- virtual correlates of neural modules. Daemons have favored choices and make decisions that control behaviors of the group to which they belong, with each daemon preferring a different outcome. Richards arranges these preferences in graphs, linking similar choices, which thus reinforce each other. "Anigrafs" refers to these two components -- animals, or the mental organisms (agents or daemons), and the graphs that show similarity relations. Together these two components are the basis of a new cognitive architecture. In Richards's account, a collection of daemons compete for control of the cognitive system in which they reside; the challenge is to get the daemons to agree on one of many choices. Richards explores the res lts of group decisions, emphasizing the Condorcet voting procedure for aggregating preferences. A neural mechanism is proposed. _Anigrafs_ presents a series of group decisions that incorporate simple and complex movements, as well as aspects of cognition and belief. _ Anigrafs_ concludes with a section on "metagrafs," which chart relationships between different anigraf models.

  • Geographical Design:Spatial Cognition and Geographical Information Science

    With GIS technologies ranging from Google Maps and Google Earth to the use of smart phones and in-car navigation systems, spatial knowledge is often acquired and communicated through geographic information technologies. This monograph describes the interplay between spatial cognition research and use of spatial interfaces. It begins by reviewing what is known about how humans process spatial concepts and then moves on to discuss how interfaces can be improved to take advantage of those capabilities. Special attention is given to a variety of innovative geographical platforms that provide users with an intuitive understanding and support the further acquisition of spatial knowledge. The monograph concludes with a discussion of the number of outstanding issues, including the changing nature of maps as the primary spatial interface, concerns about privacy for spatial information, and a look at the future of user-centered spatial information systems.

  • Mechanistic and ecological explanations in agent-based models of cognition

    We argue that two styles of explanation--mechanistic and ecological--are needed in accounting for the behaviour of synthetic agents. An emphasis on mechanistic explanation in some current ALife models is identified, and parallels are drawn with issues in the philosophy of mind literature. We conclude that ecological or agent-level explanation does not come with representational baggage, and that mechanistic explanations cannot stand alone.

  • Learning To Do Without Cognition

    In this paper we show that a phenomenon in animal learning theory (the outcome devaluation effect) for which there is dispute over whether explicit representations and symbolic reasoning is required for its performance, does not require such things. This is done using a reactive motivational model, previously inspired from ethological thought, to which some simple reinforcement learning rules are attached. An instantation of the model is used as the control system of an animat in a spatial computer simulation and it succeeds in learning the necessary parameters to allow the behaviour sequencing system to exhibit the phenomenon.

  • Asynchronous Learning by Emotions and Cognition

    The existence of emotion and cognition as two interacting systems, both with important roles in decision-making, has been advocated by neurophysiological research (LeDoux, 1998; Damasio, 1994). Following this idea, this paper proposes the ALEC agent architecture which has both emotion and cognition learning capabilities to adapt to real-world environments. These two learning mechanisms embody very different properties which can be related with those of natural emotion and cognitive systems. Experimental results show that both systems contribute positively for the learning performance of the agent.
