Connecting ACT-R to the World with JSON over TCP


Connecting ACT-R models to software written in languages other than Common Lisp can be quite challenging. Over the years a number of attempts have been made to make this easier, some of which have been more useful and generalizable than others. Most solutions have resulted in operating system or programming language specific solutions. In the present paper we introduce the first truly cross-platform and programming language agnostic solution for connecting ACT-R to external software. We accomplish this with a simple JSON API that is transmitted over TCP.
