Niels Taatgen is professor of cognitive modeling at the University of Groningen, and director of the Bernoulli Institute of Mathematics, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. He has contributed to the ACT-R architecture by developing mechanisms for production compilation (with John Anderson), multitasking (with Dario Salvucci) and time perception (with Hedderik van Rijn). He then developed the PRIMs cognitive architecture, which is based on ACT-R, which has mechanisms for knowledge transfer and bottom-up learning.
