Our ultimate goal is to develop neural-like cognitive sensory processing within non-neuronal systems. Toward this end, computational models are being developed for selectivity attending the task-relevant parts of composite sensory excitations in an example sound processing application. Significant stimuli partials are selectively attended through the use of generalized neural adaptive beamformers. Computational components are being tested by experiment in the laboratory and also by use of recordings from sensor deployments in the ocean. Results will be presented. These computational components are being integrated into a comprehensive processing architecture that simultaneously attends memory according to stimuli, attends stimuli according to memory, and attends stimuli and memory according to an ongoing thought process. The proposed neural architecture is potentially very fast when implemented in special hardware.
