Titus Barik, Arpan Chakraborty, Brent Harrison, David L. Roberts, Robert St. Amant.  2013.  Modeling the Concentration Game with ACT-R. The 12th International Conference on Cognitive Modeling.

This paper describes the development of subsymbolic ACT-R models for the Concentration game. Performance data is taken from an experiment in which participants played the game un- der two conditions: minimizing the number of mismatches/ turns during a game, and minimizing the time to complete a game. Conflict resolution and parameter tuning are used to implement an accuracy model and a speed model that capture the differences for the two conditions. Visual attention drives exploration of the game board in the models. Modeling re- sults are generally consistent with human performance, though some systematic differences can be seen. Modeling decisions, model limitations, and open issues are discussed.
