Soar is a theory of cognition in a computer system. In 1987 it was used as the central exemplar to make the case that cognitive science should attempt unified theories of cognition (UTC). Soar research encompasses artificial intelligence and human computer interaction (HCI) as well, which we will largely ignore here. Since then, much research has been done to move Soar toward being a real UTC, rather than just an exemplar. Figure 1 lists the relevant studies. They have been done by a broad community of researchers in the pursuit of a multiplicity of interests. This paper provides additional breadth and context and presents four of these studies to convey the current site of Soar as a UTC. Keywords: Soar architecture, Natural language, Reactive environment, Concept formation, Series completion. (Author) (kr).

Based on a symposium honoring the extensive work of Allen Newell -- one of the founders of artificial intelligence, cognitive science, human-computer interaction, and the systematic study of computational architectures -- this volume demonstrates how unifying themes may be found in the diversity that characterizes current research on computers and cognition. The subject matter includes: * an overview of cognitive and computer science by leading researchers in the field; * a comprehensive description of Allen Newell's "Soar" -- a computational architecture he developed as a unified theory of cognition; * commentary on how the Soar theory of cognition relates to important issues in cognitive and computer science; * rigorous treatments of controversial issues in cognition -- methodology of cognitive science, hybrid approaches to machine learning, word-sense disambiguation in understanding material language, and the role of capability processing constraints in architectural theory; * comprehensive and systematic methods for studying architectural evolution in both hardware and software; * a thorough discussion of the use of analytic models in human computer interaction; * extensive reviews of important experiments in the study of scientific discovery and deduction; and * an updated analysis of the role of symbols in information processing by Herbert Simon. Incorporating the research of top scientists inspired by Newell's work, this volume will be of strong interest to a large variety of scientific communities including psychologists, computational linguists, computer scientists and engineers, and interface designers. It will also be valuable to those who study the scientific process itself, as it chronicles the impact of Newell's approach to research, simultaneously delving into each scientific discipline and producing results that transcend the boundaries of those disciplines.

This book presents a collection of essays on foundational and methodological issues in cognitive science. Topics range from the philosophical problems surrounding intentionality and holism to specific scientific issues concerned with the architecture of systems for problem solving, planning, language processing, vision and visual-motor coordination. The larger theme is cognitive architecture and the twelve chapters show the generality of the problems associated with this theme as it impinges on almost every area of cognitive science and most methodological approaches adopted to date.

For replicating human behavior, SCA mirrors psychological data along the dimensions of response time, accuracy and learning rate as a function of various instance and category structures including typicality, linear boundedness, category level and definitional complexity. For its role within a unified theory of cognition, SCA's learning principles are composed from the basic processing mechanisms posited by Soar, a candidate theory."

The Oxford Handbook of Affective Computing is the definitive reference for research in Affective Computing (AC), a growing multidisciplinary field encompassing computer science, engineering, psychology, education, neuroscience, and many other disciplines. The handbook explores how affective factors influence interactions between humans and technology, how affect sensing and affect generation techniques can inform our understanding of human affect, and on thedesign, implementation, and evaluation of systems that intricately involve affect at their core.
