How useful are existing cognitive architectures for creating artificial general intelligence? They may play a vital role in providing blueprints for building future intelligent systems supporting a broad range of capabilities similar to those of humans. A short survey of the state of the art in cognitive architectures, is presented, providing a useful insight into the possible frameworks for general intelligence. A critique of existing approaches, grand challenges and an outline of the most promising future directions is provided.

Keywords: cognitive architectures, brain-inspired architectures, hybrid architectures, artificial general intelligence, neurocognitive models, intelligent agents.
