Knowledge representation and decision making: A hybrid approach
Knowledge representation is a fundamental issue in the simulation of human performance such as the behaviour of a pilot engaged in air combat. Interaction between symbolic and subsymbolic networks is used in a cognitive architecture to represent the effects of emotional and motivational processes on decision making. This enables a shift from the conventional focus of combat simulation on optimal decision making to the modelling of authentic human decision making with its individual variability and imperfection.
