Oxford University Press

This is the first of the final three chapters of the book, which are concerned with evaluating the presented approach in the context of current cognitive modeling. This chapter re-presents the Core Cognitive Criteria (CCC) from chapter one, discussing and justifying each in more detail. The criteria are broken into three main sections, representational structure, performance concerns, and scientific merit. They cover familiar constraints, such as systematicity, compositionality and productivity, and include less common criteria, such as robustness, scalability, and compactness. Tutorial: How to build a brain – a practical guide

Keywords:   CCC, cognitive criteria, cognitive theories, systematicity, compositionality, productivity, scalability, binding problem, adaptability, compactness
