Towards Dynamic Process Composition in the DSO Cognitive Architecture

In recent works, the DSO Cognitive Architecture’s design is enhanced by incorporating the concept of the Global Workspace Theory(GWT). The theory proposes that consciousness is realised through the competition of massive, specialised, parallelised processes and thus parallelised, unsynchronised cognitive processes become sequential through such bottleneck. Due to the concurrent nature of DSO Cognitive Architecture, coordination of the different parallel processes through this competition mechanism can be difficult and if not handled properly, will create inconsistent results. In this work, we propose a preliminary framework to coordinate the different processes by process composition which borrows concepts from automated planning. Processes, its argument signature and its output are abstracted into higher level type abstractions which can be used to compose with other processes based on matching the output types to argument types. This is known as process composition and it represents a sketch of how different process can coordinate with one another. We combined this with the current design of the DSO Cognitive Architecture and illustrate an example in crowd anomaly detection
