This paper is aimed at furthering discussions about the properties which computational cognitive models of attentional control should have if they are meant to be applied in interactive human-computer systems, namely for predicting human attention shifts across control levels. The paper discusses a number of issues of attentional control and implications that follow for computational modeling. It concludes by proposing the term anticipatory cognitive computing for those computational approaches that incorporate cognitive processing mechanisms found to exist in humans and that employ these mechanisms to generate hypothesis about imminent human cognitive and external actions.
