distributed processing and caching of information which can help reduce the load on the CPU when evaluating some action’s context preconditions. Orkin continues to explain the working memory concept in greater depth indicating that the working memory is made up of a collection of working memory facts, each of which have the same general structure. Each fact can have a confidence value associated with it which is a value between zero and one and represents the confidence or certainty the agent has regarding that certain working memory fact. The concept of an internal blackboard is introduced, it is likened to a central scratch- pad that all the subsystems use to communicate with one another.
