Abstract [en]

This Master Thesis report explains the project of trying to connect the humancognition architecture Soar (an AI architecture) to the simulation architecture HLA (High Level Architecture). Descriptions of both Soar and HLA are presented.

A connection between the two, whose main objective is the transfer of relevant data between Soar and HLA, is not a completely straightforward task. The task involves many different aspects of the HLA architecture, including threading in HLA interfaces, dealing with the HLA data representation, time management, transfer of ownership of HLA objects, HLA interactions, etc.

Analysis of the different aspects and their effects on a Soar component has been conducted and is presented. Different possible approaches to solutions to problems and their respective advantages are briefly described.

An implementation of a system including the most vital functions has been created. The system itself, some problems that came up during the implementation of the system and the actions taken to circumvent them, are described together with satisfactory results.

The paper ends with a discussion of different problems that includes some ideas of how to move forward.

The report concludes that creating a system that can deal with most of the aspects (inherent in the HLA architecture) in a general manner is probably too complex. With a more specified behaviour that a user will have to be confined to, a reliable system could be created. The report also concludes that in order to create a reusable HLA-connected system that not only works with Soar but with other AI architectures as well, the design of the system will probably have to be created with reusability plans in mind from the very beginning of the design process.
