Abstract: 

Intelligent software agents aiming for general intelligence are likely to be exceedingly complex systems and, as such, will be difficult to implement and to customize. Frameworks have been applied successfully in large-scale software engineering applications. A framework constitutes the skeleton of the application, capturing its generic functionality. Frameworks are powerful as they promote code reusability and significantly reduce the amount of effort necessary to develop customized applications. They are well suited for the implementation of AGI software agents. Here we describe the LIDA framework, a customizable implementation of the LIDA model of cognition. We argue that its characteristics make it suitable for wider use in developing AGI cognitive architectures.
