Abstract: "It is argued that human cognition can be predicted from the assumption that it is optimized to the information-processing demands that are placed on it. Results that are taken in support of particular architectures (PDP, ACT*, SOAR) are shown to be consequences of this rationality principle of human cognitions. Implications of this rationality principle for cognitive architectures are discussed."
