The Inception of the Virtual Autonomous Learner (VAL)

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Inception of VALThe inception of VAL was conceived in an advanced reading class where I studied the current state of artificial intelligence (AI). The background research involved in this project was heavily interdisciplinary.

Much of my research led to experimental psychology and the field of computational neural modeling and cognitive architectures.

In the beginning, I was overwhelmed and astonished with the variety of cognitive architectures that were currently being developed within reputable institutions1.
