CHREST is a cognitive architecture for modelling human perception and memory.

The CHREST software provides a graphical application and library for running a variety of CHREST models and experiments. Currently, the graphical interface supports a range of domain-types for demonstration and test purposes. More functionality for developing models is available using the scripting interface.

Sample data, examples of scripting and a user manual are included in the download.


CHREST can be used in a wide number of applications, but the following application areas are specifically supported in the GUI:
