The ACT Web
Welcome to the Web site for the ACT research group.
The ACT group is led by
John Anderson at
Carnegie Mellon University and is concerned with the ACT theory and architecture of cognition. The goal of this research is to understand how people acquire and organize knowledge and produce intelligent behavior. The ACT-R unified theory of cognition attempts to develop a cognitive architecture that can perform in detail a full range of cognitive tasks. The architecture takes the form of a computer simulation which is capable of performing and learning from the same tasks worked on by human subjects in our laboratories.
