The Reagan Effect: Self-presentation in humans and computers

Posner, Roland

I will examine in the first part of this paper the types of selves; in the second part, the kinds of presentation; and in the third part, the processes of self-presentation. In doing so, and in accordance with a successful strategy of artificial intelligence research, I will talk about people: people like you and me. I will generalize the results, however, so that they can be applied to all interactive cognitive systems. This will allow me to define the minimum requirements that a cognitive system must meet in order to develop a self.
