Abstract:
Training for practicing counselors involves training to help people learn to cope more effectively with mental health issues and developmental issues, along with life issues in general. Counselors are trained in a variety of techniques, based on the best available research and minimal standards based on professional accreditation. However, live training in the beginning, with actual patients is difficult since it is not practical to have counselors “practice” on people with actual psychological issues. Presented here is a proposed training system, called the “Cognitive, Interactive, Psychological Training System (CIPTS), which provides artificially intelligent profiles instantiated as “avatars for interaction with counselors,” based on a set of different personality profiles created by a team of leading counselor educators and represent a variety of psychological, social, and biopsychosocial health issues that can be used to help train counselors in a non-live, non-threatening environment, but yet valuable.

Human Cognition and Artificial Intelligence: The Artificial Prefrontal Cortex Revisited

Abstract:
Many researchers have postulated that human cognition is implemented by a multitude of relatively small, special purpose processes, almost always unconscious communication between them is rare and over a narrow bandwidth. Coalitions of such processes find their way into consciousness. This limited capacity work space available for our cognition serves to broadcast the message of the coalition to all the unconscious processors within the human brain, to recruit other processors to join in handling the current novel situation, or in solving the current problem. Therefore, consciousness in this theory allows us to deal with novelty or problematic situations that can’t be dealt with efficiently, or at all, by habituated unconscious processes. It provides access to appropriately useful resources, thereby solving the relevance problem. Here we present the design and testing of and Artificial Prefrontal Cortex (APC) model for use cognitive state transition and management in artificial cognition systems.

Abstract:
Historically, research shows analysis, characterization, and classification of complex heterogeneous non-linear systems and interactions have been difficult to accurately understand and effectively model. Advanced biophysical and biomechanical prosthesis research shows that development of patient specific physiologically meaningful musculotendinous proprioception would generate a marked impact on reflex control, fine volitional motor control, and overall user experience.

Artificial Neural Diagnostics and Prognostics: Self-Soothing in Cognitive Systems

Abstract:
Self-diagnostics and prognostics in multi-agent processing systems is explored in the context of self-soothing concepts in neuropsychology. This is one of the first steps to facilitate systems-level thinking in AI. Autonomous or semi-autonomous system must be able to understand, at a system wide level, how every part of the system is influencing the other parts of the system.
