Abstract

This paper describes our latest efforts to extend the Symbolic and Sub-symbolic Robotics Intelligence Control System (SS-RICS). Our initial development included five design guidelines for a generalized intelligence system and those guidelines are discussed in relationship to the current improvements and extensions. We also discuss recent exercises at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) robotics test facility as well as the addition of Decision Field Theory (DFT) into the architecture. We conclude that the hybrid nature of SS-RICS allows for some improvements over traditional architectures by allowing for both sub-symbolic and symbolic problems to be addressed. However, the challenges of generalization across problem spaces still remains a topic for further research.
