The Role of Cognitive Architecture in Modeling the User: Soar's Learning Mechanism.
Howes, Andrew; Young, Richard M.
Human-Computer Interaction, v12 n4 p311-43 1997
Illustrates "hard" and "soft" theoretical constraints of cognitive structures and examines ways in which the learning mechanism feature of the Soar architecture places hard constraints on all models that use the feature. The relationship between architecture and model in terms of the degree to which a model is compliant with constraints set by the architecture is discussed. (AEF)
