Introduction to the workshop and the MIDCA project in general.
Cognitive Architectures and MIDCA
Speaker: Michael T. Cox
This talk presents an overview of the concept of a cognitive architecture. We provide two definitions from the literature and place the subject within the context of related terms such as cognitive system and cognitive agent. We briefly survey a small number of existing architectures and compare and contrast them to the Metacognitive Integrated Dual-Cycle Architecture or MIDCA.
Goal Graph and Goal Operations in MIDCA
Speaker: Sravya Kondrakunta
Using MIDCA to Enable Intelligent Rebellion
Speaker: James Boggs
This talk demonstrates how MIDCA can be used in unorthodox ways to create rebellious autonomous agents and the benefits of using MIDCA for this purpose. It discusses both the practical question of how MIDCA was used to create rebel agents and higher-level considerations about the nature of MIDCA itself.
MIDCA’s Architectural Commitments
Speaker: Dustin Dannenhauer
This talk starts by asking the question: “What are MIDCA’s Architectural Commitments”? One of the core commitments is metacognition. I talk about work on metacognitive expectations, including some early results, followed by some limitations and directions for future work.
Meta-cognition for power management in autonomous systems
Speaker: Ryan Green
Baxter Robot with MIDCA
Speaker: Venkatsampath Gogineni
Goal Monitors: Planning, Interpretation and Perception
Speaker: Zohreh A. Dannenhauer
Discussion and Closing
A discussion between the audience and speakers. Basically an informal conversation around MIDCA, goal reasoning, and metacognition.
