Flashcards in Comp. Models of the Mind - Last Slide Pack I Deck (32):
1

What does MHP stand for?

Model Human Processor

2

What does CCT stand for?

Cognitive Complexity Theory

3

What can a theory of transfer of training be based on?

the CCT

4

What are the three interacting subsystems ("processors") in the Model Human Processor?

- Perceptual (Auditiry and visual image store)
- Cognitive (working and long-term memories)
- Motor subsytem

5

5 properties of the MHP:

- Three interacting subsystems
- Limited capacities and timing
- specific interfaces and general operating principles (e.g. Fitts' law)
- support for serial and parallel behaviors
- quantitative predictions about execution times

6

List some example parameters of the Model Human Processor:

- Capacity and decay e.g. of Auditory image store or working memory.
- Cycle durations of cognitive (100), motor (70) and perceptual (70) processors

7

What can Model Human Processor be used for?

MHP can be used to calculate how long it takes to perform a certain task. Products can be analysed based on MHP.

Motivation
Perception
Philosophical Foundation
Relevance of Autonomy
Representation
Semantic Grounding
Time

9

Cognitivist Paradigm on Computational Operation

- Rule-based manipulation of symbols
- usually sequential

10

Cognitivist Paradigm on Representational Framework

- Patterns of Symbolic Tokens refer to events in real world
- product of designer
- usually local

11

Cognitivist Paradigm on Semantic Grounding

- grounded through percept-symbol identification
- representations directly accessible for humans

12

Cognitivist Paradigm on Temporal Constraints

- not necessarily entrained (automatically synchronised) by worldly events

13

Cognitivist Paradigm on Inter-Agent Epistemology

- positivist view of reality: abolute shared epistemology
- structure and semantics of world are idenpendent of system's cognition

14

Cognitivist Paradigm on Embodiment

- not necessarily
- cognition -> skull-bound

15

Cognitivist Paradigm on Perception

-perception as interface btw. world and internal representations
- perception abstracts spatio-temporal representations from sensory data

16

Cognitivist Paradigm on Action

- causal consequence of cognition

17

Cognitivist Paradigm on Anticipation

- usually planning using procedural or probabilistic reasoning

18

Cognitivist Paradigm on Adaptation

- usually by acquisition of new knowledge

19

Cognitivist Paradigm on Motivation

- e.g. resolving an impasse

20

Cognitivist Paradigm on Relevance of Autonomy

- not necessarily

21

Emergent Paradigm on Temporal Constraints

- Synchronous realt-time entrainment with the world

22

Emergent Paradigm on Inter-Agent Epistemology

- agent-dependent epistemology, based on shared experiences

23

Emergent Paradigm on Embodiment

- cognition, action and perception is embodied

24

Emergent Paradigm on Perception

- change of system's state in response to world to maintain stability

25

Emergent Paradigm on Action

- pertubation of world by the system

26

Emergent Paradigm on Anticipation

- requires system to visit states without conducting associated actions

27

Emergent Paradigm on Adaptation

- structural alteration, reorganisation

28

Emergent Paradigm on Motivation

- e.g. enlarging space of interaction

29

Emergent Paradigm on Relevance of Autonomy

- crucial! cognition as process whereby system becomes autonomous, viable and effective

30

Emergent Paradigm on Semantic Grounding

- meaning only in terms of sustaining system viability
- not directly accesible for humans

31

Emergent Paradigm on Representational Framework

- global system states, encoded in the dynamic organization of system components

32

Emergent Paradigm on Computational Operation

- network of interacting components
