The CLARION Cognitive Architecture: Motivation, Personality, and Creativity

Ron Sun

November 15, 2011
Rensselaer Union, Room 3606 (Shelnutt Gallery) - 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.


In this talk, I will focus on a hybrid cogntiive architecture developed over the past decade and half, CLARION. In this dual-process cognitive architecture, the interaction between implicit and explicit cognitive processes is emphasized. Using the architecture, various psychological effects of the interaction between the two types of processes have been accounted for. Thus far, CLARION has been capturing a wide range of quantitative human behavioral data. Many new simulations have been conducted and new human experiments have generated relevant data, including in the areas of human creativity, personality, and cognitive social simulation, all of which further validate the cognitive architecture, and its focus on the dual processes of and the interaction between the implicit and the explicit.
