An Engineering Model of Subcognition
MetadataShow full item record
Symbolic and neural modes are discussed from the point of view of implementing the "intuitive" processes which mediate real-time control skills. The engineering preference is to transcend rather than emulate those limitations which are inherent in the brain's subsymbolic modes of operation. A main payoff lies in recovering, from performance data, symbolic representations of intuitive real-time skills. Practical illustrations are reviewed using recent case studies.
