Control States and Complete Agent Architectures

Darryl N. Davis
2001 Computational intelligence  
The contention is that a highly interconnected four-layer architecture is required for a complete (cognitive) agent, making use of reflexive, reactive, deliberative and reflective behaviors.  ...  They are associated with the instantaneous formation of an idea, perhaps unrelated to current cognitive context, and can cause a temporary or more persistent re-focus of mind.  ...  This developing theory does provide for architectures that allow an integration of reflexive, reactive, deliberative and reflective behaviors.  ...

Architectures and Idioms: Making Progress in Agent Design [chapter]
