Towards an Integrated Robot with Multiple Cognitive Functions.
In Robert C. Holte and Adele Howe (editors) Proceedings of the Twenty-Second AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI 2008), pages 1548 -- 1553, AAAI Press.
We present integration mechanisms for combining heterogeneous
components in a situated information processing system, illustrated by
a cognitive robot able to collaborate with a human and display some
understanding of its surroundings. These mechanisms include an
architectural schema that encourages parallel and incremental
information processing, and a method for binding information
from distinct representations that when faced with rapid change in the
world can maintain a coherent, though distributed, view of
it. Provisional results are demonstrated in a robot combining vision,
manipulation, language, planning and reasoning capabilities
interacting with a human and manipulable objects.
