The CLARION Project Home Page
CLARION is a project investigating
fundamental structures of the human mind. In particular, it aims to explore the
interaction of implicit and explicit cognition, emphasizing bottom-up learning
(i.e., learning that involves acquiring first implicit knowledge and then
acquiring explicit knowledge on its basis). The project is aimed at the
synthesis of many interesting intellectual ideas into a coherent model of
cognition. The goal is to form a (generic) cognitive architecture that captures
a variety of cognitive processes in a unified way and thus to provide unified
explanations of a wide range of data.
The current objective of this project is two-fold: (a) developing artificial
agents in certain cognitive task domains and (b) understanding human learning
and reasoning in similar domains. The project is led by Prof.
Ron Sun. . The project has been supported by ONR and ARI.
