The hypothesis is presented that "cognitive synergy" -- proactive and mutually-assistive feedback between different cognitive processes associated with different types of memory -- may serve as a foundation for advanced artificial general intelligence. A specific AI architecture founded on this idea, OpenCogPrime, is described, in the context of its application to control virtual agents and robots. The manifestations of cognitive synergy in OpenCogPrime's procedural and declarative learning algorithms are discussed in some detail.
