Editorial Reviews

Review

"During the past decade cognitive models have proved essential for understanding human learning, problem solving, decision making, and supervisory control. This book will enable a new generation of researchers to confront underlying scientific issues while focusing on the impressive recent achievements of cognitive modeling."--Michael G. Shafto, Computational Sciences Division, NASA Ames Research Center



"A remarkably comprehensive sampling of recent work in cognitive modeling that would be a great resource for a course on the topic."--Susan F. Chipman, Manager, Cognitive Science Program, Office of Naval Research

Format: Hardcover
This book presents the current and mor well-known models of cognition in the area cognitive science. This includes descriptions of both symbolic and connectionist models (e.g. ACT-R, SOAR, ART-MAP, MAC/FAC, etc.), written by the authors who developed them. However, each chapter presents a somewhat condensed version of each model, so some (but not all) of the technical details are ommitted. Overall, the book can function as an extensive introduction to contemporary methods and issues in cognitive modelling, or as a reference book for those more familiar with the field.

This book could be considered to be a collection of articles on the `computational theory of mind.' Although the articles are somewhat out of date, due to the advances in neuroscience and cognitive science that have occurred since the time of publication of the book, it does serve as a good motivation for the understanding of more recent developments. I did not read all of the articles in the book, and so my review will be confined to the ones that I did.

The article on ACT in chapter 2 is basically a theory of cognition that is based on recursion. Referring to ACT as a "simple theory of complex cognition", John Anderson, the author of the article, wants to simulate the manner in which humans develop recursive programs. The machine that is to simulate this makes use of `production rules,' in its knowledge base, which the author claims is exhaustive enough to produce complex cognition. To produce true machine intelligence, all one has to do is to tune these production rules and make use of them as needed. As the author describes it, the original ACT theory was based on human associative memory, but the one described in this article is called ACT-R, and can simulate adaptive behavior in the presence of a noisy environment. The author describes various simulations using ACT-R, and concludes that it is sensitive to prior information and to information about what is appropriate response to the situation it finds itself in. The author stresses more than once the simplicity of the ACT-R system: it is able to encode data from the environment as declarative knowledge, encode the changes in the environment as procedural knowledge, and encode the statistics of this knowledge use in the environment.
