The Contemporary Craft of Creating Characters Meets Today's Cognitive Architectures: A Case Study in Expressivity.
Integrating Cognitive Architectures into Virtual Character Design
What does the contemporary craft of character design (by human authors), which is beyond the reach of foreseeable AI, and which isn't powered by any stunning, speculative, AI-infused technology (immersive or otherwise), but is instead aided by tried-and-true “AI-less” software tools and immemorial techniques that are still routinely taught today, imply with respect to today's computational cognitive architectures? This chapter narrows the scope of this large question, and argues that at present, perhaps only the cognitive architecture CLARION can represent and reason over knowledge at a level of logical expressivity sufficient to capture such characters, along with the robust modeling implied by contemporary story and character design.
