Ken Forbus, Matt Klenk, Tom Hinrichs

Companion Cognitive Systems is a cognitive architecture inspired by natural intelligent systems. In this paper, we describe seven design goals of Companions, relate them to properties of human reasoning, and discuss their implications. We present our experiences in developing and experimenting with Companions so far, and the challenges that remain.
