Principles of Synthetic Intelligence PSI: An Architecture of Motivated Cognition

Joscha Bach

Oxford University Press

This chapter lays the groundwork for discussing Psi theory and Micro Psi by giving a short introduction to the philosophical and methodological concepts of cognitive architectures, especially the computational theory of the mind and the language of thought hypothesis. It highlights how cognitive models have been established in artificial intelligence research and psychology as a paradigm of understanding the mind, and explains their current main families: symbolic, distributed, and neuro-symbolic models.

Keywords:   cognition, cognitive models, machines of cognition, computational theory, cognitive systems
