Surprise as shortcut for Anticipation: clustering Mental States in Reasoning  2006-12-06
To enhance effectiveness in real world applications, autonomous agents have to develop cognitive competencies and anticipatory capabilities. Here we point out their strong liaison with the functional roles of affective mental states as those of humanlike metaphor: not only the root elements for both surprise and anticipation are expectations, but also part of the effects of the former elicit efforts on the latter. By analyzing different kinds of expectations, we provide a general architecture enhancing practical reasoning with mental states, describing and empirically evaluating how mental and behavioral attitudes, emerging from mental states, can be applied for augmenting agent reactivity, opportunism and efficacy in terms of anticipation.

Anticipatory Cognitive Science is a research field that ensembles artificial intelligence, biology, psychology, neurology, engineering and philosophy in order to build anticipatory cognitive systems that are able to face human tasks with the same anticipatory capabilities and performance. In deep: Cognitive science is the interdisciplinary study of mind and intelligence, embracing philosophy, psychology, artificial intelligence, neuroscience, linguistics, and anthropology. Its intellectual origins are in the mid-1950s when researchers in several fields began to develop theories of mind based on complex representations and computational procedures. Its organizational origins are in the mid-1970s when the Cognitive Science Society was formed and the journal Cognitive Science began. Since then, more than sixty universities in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia have established cognitive science programs, and many others have instituted courses in cognitive science.
