Brom, CyrilPogamut is a cognitive architecture designed to develop and improve continuously a research platform for investigating and teaching mechanisms of action selection of virtual agents. Developed by a research group of Cyril Brom  at Univerzitě Karlově v Praze, Česká republika (Department of Software and Computer Science Education, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University in Prague, Prague, Czech Republic).

Общие сведения

Pogamut allows user to fast code his virtual character in a virtual world, and solve a number of low level problems such as:
a) connecting to the environment,
b) exporting information about the virtual world or
c) providing a basic path finding.

A list of projects that exploited Pogamut in some way.
- StorySpeak - StorySpeak is a language for the specification of agents programs. This language is especially designed for the authoring of short virtual stories.
- Episodic memory for virtual agent - Episodic memory for virtual agent project designed and implemented a prototype of the episodic memory for virtual humans. The memory was inspired by up to date research on function of human memory for personal events (episodes) and human time perception.
- PojACT-R - PojACT-R is composition of Pogamut, Java and ACT-R. It means that it is plugin which connects Pogamut with cognitive architecture ACT-R, specifically with Java implementation of ACT-R called jACT-R.

Knowledge and experiences are represented using: rules, operators
Main components:
procedural knowledge encoded as reactive rules;

episodic and spatial memory encoded within a set of graph-based structures
Implementation: Java, Python; features ACT-R binding and Emergent binding
Main general paradigms: 3D virtual worlds

1. Human-like artificial Agents - practical part of the lecture below.
2. A lecture on Human-like and Animal-like Agents - tought at Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University, Prague where Pogamut is used for practice lessons.
3. Action selection for Intelligent Systems This is a popular white paper contributed by Cyril Brom, Charles University, Prague, and Joanna Bryson, University of Bath, UK, to euCognition (pdf).
