Cognitive Architecture for Expertise Delivery

FORR: A Cognitive Architecture for Expertise, by Susan Epstein
City University of New York (CUNY). Major support by the NSF

Attended this presentation today.  Very nicely done, especially how it examined the broad  architecture of cognitive problems and links to delivered expertise.   Could have used this systematization during our expert systems development work.  Dealing with quick solutions, inexact and changing data. Also showed a number of applications of FORR, mostly that deal with robotic applications like search and discover.  I see an application to Internet of Things expertise delivery. The problems addressed are still relatively simplistic, generalized problem solving within a domain, this will still require considerable development, but this is a great place to start.

Slides from talk.     Susan L Epstein site and related work.

Further,  my note on IOT integration:

  " ... In her CUNY outline it mentioned multi robot teams, which many of her Cog architecture expertise examples showed.  It came to mind that a similar idea could be used for linking nodes in an Internet of Things (IOT) network, especially in industrial settings.  Maintenance, Inventory, Location, Data Gathering, Human augmentation, Environmental ...  A wearable device then shows where the special expertise of a human being can be best used.  Opportunities abound. ...
