AI Seminar: A Computational Model of Intention Selection


Søren Kyllingsbæk, Professor and Head of Department of Psychology, University of Copenhagen.


At any one time, many intentions are represented in long-term memory and many of these may be relevant in the current context. Therefore, successful control of action by decision-making requires a solution to the computational problem of how the right intention is selected, out of a multitude of intentions, for execution at the right time. We propose a Computational Theory of Intention Selection (CTIS) of how standing distal intentions are selected from long-term memory, transformed into occurrent distal intentions in working memory, and then to proximal occurrent intentions leading to actions.

The seminar is free and open for everyone.
