  • Department of ISE, PVP polytechnic, Dr.AIT Campus, Outer ring road, Malathahalli, Bangalore – 560056, Karnataka,, India
  • Department of Computer Science, Research Progress Review Committee[RPRC], Dr.Ambedkar Institute of Technology, Visvesvaraya Technological University, Bengaluru – 560056, Karnataka,, India


The objective of this paper is to review on cognitive architectures, in which we undertake the comprehensive functional comparison by looking at a wide variety of cognitive components, including perception, goal representation, learning mechanism and problem- solving method. In closing, we discuss many open issues and research gap which is necessity to drive of upcoming research work in essential location. This particular compare intends on identify some sort of excellent structure for the Learning system.
