Real-world behavior as a constraint on the cognitive architecture: Comparing ACT-R and DAC in the Newell test

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (5):624-626 (2003)
The Newell Test is an important step in advancing our understanding of cognition. One critical constraint is missing from this test: A cognitive architecture must be self-contained. ACT-R and connectionism fail on this account. I present an alternative proposal, called Distributed Adaptive Control (DAC), and expose it to the Newell Test with the goal of achieving a clearer specification of the different constraints and their relationships, as proposed by Anderson & Lebiere (A&L).
