Postgraduate course by Dr. Froese this semester

This semester Dr. Froese will teach the following course, which introduces the foundations of many of this group’s lines of research:

Agentes autónomos, sistemas sociales, y la nueva ciencia cognitiva

When: Mondays and Wednesdays, 13:00 – 14:30 (First class: 29/01/2018)
Where: Anexo del IIMAS, Circuito Escolar, Ciudad Universitaria, DF

This course will introduce ongoing debates in cognitive science about our changing understanding of the mind. Instead of being thought of as a digital computer inside the brain, mind is now widely considered to be an embodied, embedded and extended activity in the world. These ideas will be illustrated based on case studies of research in agent-based models and human-computer interfaces, with special emphasis on demonstrating how social interactions and technologies shape our mind. Students are not expected to program models nor to design interfaces, but to understand the implications of the new cognitive science and to apply them to their own research interests. The course will be taught mainly in English to better prepare students for the special terms used by leading researchers in cognitive science.
