ABSTRACT
Engineers have long employed control systems utilizing models and feedback loops to control real-world systems. Limitations of model-based control led to a generation of intelligent control techniques such as adaptive and fuzzy control. The human brain, on the other hand, is known to process a variety of inputs in parallel, and shift between different levels of cognitive activities while ignoring distractions to focus on the task in hand. This process, known as cognitive control in psychology, is unique to humans and a handful of animals. We are interested in implementing such cognitive control functionalities for our humanoid robot ISAC. This paper outlines the features of multiagent-based cognitive architecture for a humanoid robot and the progress made toward the realization of cognitive control functionalities using attention, working memory and internal rehearsal. Several experiments have been conducted to show that the implementation of an integrated cognitive robot architecture is feasible.
