The most complex thing humans do is decide. A single decision requires that you accumulate evidence from diverse sensory inputs, associate past memories, integrate knowledge from repositories, collaborate, address uncertainty, learn, convert raw information to symbols, reason and, finally, decide. Deciding is a natural part of cognition, and we do it easily and naturally. At SoarTech, we build software to mimic this process with incredible possibilities every day. How is this possible? All of these skills are among the native capabilities of the Soar Cognitive Architecture. What can you imagine?
Anticipatory systems monitor activities and anticipate your information needs based on a changing world. They understand your role and goals and provide you with the information you need, when you need it, and the way you need to see it to be useful. Anticipatory systems are being applied to everything from threat analysis to intelligent automobiles.
Cognitive information displays are based not on prescribed widgets, graphs, or monitors but on an understanding of your goals and what information is important to you, displayed in a manner most appropriate for the situation. Cognitive information displays are being used to interface with higher-level, multi-INT fused data and network security systems.
