Abstract: Being able to acquire knowledge and form concepts by observing, exploring, and interacting with the environment and then applying the knowledge thus gained for problem solving to satisfy its goals and needs is the hallmark of an adaptive autonomous intelligent agent. However, for an intelligent agent to be fully autonomous and adaptive, all aspects of intelligent processing from perception to action must be engaged and integrated. To build such an all-encompassing system is a formidable task. We propose that a good approach is to first identify the necessary intelligent computational structures and processes for dealing with a suitably designed micro-environment so that they are tractable. The challenge for computational intelligence is then to uncover general principles leading to general computational structures and processes that can deal with the micro-environment and that are also scalable to deal with more complex and real-world environments. Neuroscience research revealed that there are indeed such scalable general mechanisms in the brain and this is reviewed to provide inspirations for the building of artificial systems. A suitable micro-environment for this purpose must consist of a minimal set of features necessary to engage the various intelligent processes from that of the perceptual to that of the attentional, memory, affective, conceptual, planning, action, and learning. The micro-environment benchmark we propose here consists of an internal environment including the affective states of the intelligent agent as well as an external environment that is dynamic and in which activities of and interactions between objects can take place to engage the intelligent agent in all the intelligent processes described above. © 2013 IEEE.
