Python ACT-R is a re-implementation and re-conceptualization of the ACT-R architecture in the Python language. It has the same cognitive functionality as Lisp ACT-R but it does not have Lisp ACT-R's perceptual and motor modules. Instead, Python ACT-R has a system for building modules by re-implementing the production system mechanism and the semantic network mechanism used to model procedural memory and declarative memory in ACT-R theory. Therefore, Python ACT-R is driven by multiple production systems operating in parallel. This is different from Lisp ACT-R, but will produce the same behavior as long as only one production system is used for modeling procedural memory.
