Online Symposium on Computational Approaches to the Mind

Dear all,

we invite you to participate in a one-day online-only symposium on 21st October 2022 - free of charge and open to all:

Rethinking Computational Approaches to the Mind: Fundamental Challenges and Future Perspectives

This event will bring together researchers with expertise in various areas such as complexity science, machine learning & artificial intelligence, information theory & data science, as well as computational/theoretical neuroscience & philosophy to explore different computational approaches in the study of the “mind” (in brains and/or machines):

  1. What are those approaches essentially about?
  2. What are major benefits & caveats?
  3. Do different approaches speak to, complement, or contradict each other?
  4. What are the current challenges in computational approaches to understand the mind, and what could bring progress?

The event is organized within the “Sensation and Perception to Awareness: Leverhulme Doctoral Scholarship Programme” at the University of Sussex, and will comprise a set of talks followed by a panel discussion.

Find more info - including how to register - on our event website. Feel free to spread widely in your networks.

We look forward to a day of exciting talks and discussions!

Nadine Spychala, Tomasz Korbak, & Federico Micheli (event organizers)
