Abstract

We present a database that provides an interface for the ACTR modeling community to interact with each other (http://www-abc.mpib-berlin.mpg.de/actrdb/ ). The database includes estimated values of ACT-R parameters from a wide range of ACT-R modeling studies, selected from the studies available on the ACT-R website. It serves as a tool to query studies and estimated values for ACT-R parameters, providing the exact range of values for each of the available free numerical parameters. In short, the database supports an alternative community-based approach to manage the challenges associated with parameter estimation for complex cognitive architectures like ACT-R.
