What is SS-RICS?

The Symbolic and Subsymbolic Robotic Intelligence Control System (SS-RICS) was inspired by ACT-R and other computational cognitive architectures that are attempting to merge connectionist and symbolic AI approaches. By applying cognitive psychological principles to robotics, we believe it is possible to produce a system that is capable of autonomous operation and high level interaction with human operators. This system merges high level symbolic representations of objects and activities into a production system processor driven by high-level goals and low-level parallel processing of input sensory devices. This merge of low-level sub-symbolic processing and symbolic goal-driven processing will allow us to meet the demanding real time autonomous processing needed to interact with the dynamic world we live in.
