Abstract and Keywords
Within the human mind, are there multiple, qualitatively different systems? Are there different processes of learning and performance that have radically different characteristics? If so, what are these? How do they differ from each other? How do they interact and integrate? There have been various speculations in this regard, often centered on two (or more) interacting systems within the human mind. This chapter reviews arguments in favor of two-system views and discusses the interaction and integration of the two systems in terms of different learning directions going from one system to the other. It also outlines the overall cognitive architecture that encompasses and structures these aspects.
Ron Sun is Professor of Cognitive Science and Computer Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. His research interests center around the study of cognition, especially in the areas of cognitive architectures, human reasoning and learning, cognitive social simulation, and hybrid connectionist-symbolic models. He published many papers in these areas, as well as ten books, including Anatomy of the Mind andCambridge Handbook of Computational Psychology. For his paper on integrating rule-based and connectionist models for accounting for human everyday reasoning, he received the David Marr Award from Cognitive Science Society. For his work on human skill learning, he received the Hebb Award from International Neural Network Society. He was the founding co-editor-in-chief of the journal Cognitive Systems Research, and also serves on the editorial boards of many other journals. He chaired a number of major international conferences. He is a fellow of IEEE, APS, and other societies, and he was president of International Neural Network Society 2011–2012.
