%X We assume that conscious functions are implemented
automatically. In other words that consciousness as well as the
non-consciousness aspect of human thought, planning and perception,
are produced by biologically adaptive algorithms. We propose that
the mechanisms of consciousness can be produced using similar
adaptive algorithms to those executed by the mechanism. In this
paper, we present a computational model of consciousness, the
”Global Abstraction Workspace” which is an internal environmental
modelling perceived as a multi-agent system. This system is able to
evolve and generate new data and processes as well as actions in the
environment.
