Part of the Cognitive Technologies book series (COGTECH)


In this chapter we describe the structure, processes, techniques and methods at the conceptual level, which according to our approach will be necessary (i) to understand (e.g. human) cognition and (ii) to support its modelling. This structure, together with all the constituents forms, we call a “cognitive architecture”. This architecture will be developed w.r.t. a cognizing agent, which is the main actor in our approach. A cognizing agent means either a living entity (particularly a human being), or a group of them or a technical system, which can adapt to the changing conditions of the external environment.
