Summary: Current intelligent systems are limited in capability and perform poorly under changing conditions and requirements because they are designed to require human intervention when the environment changes or system goals change. Cognitive systems are seen to be the next generation systems because they are equipped with sensors which enable them to acquire information directly from the environment and actuators which allow them to act in the world. This project will develop a framework, methodology, and techniques for designing and developing grounded cognitive systems that can plan, communicate, collaborate and respond robustly to change in complex and dynamic environments.
