Human Frontal Lobes and AI Planning Systems

Richard Levinson

This paper presents an AI model of integrated planning and reaction based on neuropsychological theories of similar human behavior. The model forges a link between frontal lobe models and AI planning systems that can improve our understanding of situated planning through a combined perspective. This paper first sets the frontal lobes in context, and then summ-rizes the frontal lobe theories upon which the model is based. Those theories axe then synthesized into a single computational mode/for an axtiticial frontal lobe, and the components axe discussed from both neuropsychological and AI perspectives. The paper concludes with a discussion of evaluation issues.
