Program description

Summer Course on Minds and Machines

An overview of the interdisciplinary study of cognition, information, communication, and language, with an emphasis on foundational issues: What are minds? What is computation? What are rationality and intelligence? Can we predict human behavior? Can computers be truly intelligent? How do people and technology interact, and how might they do so in the future? Lectures focus on how the methods of philosophy, mathematics, empirical research, and computational modeling are used to study minds and machines. Undergraduates considering a major in symbolic systems should take this course as early as possible in their program of study.

Please note:

There has been very high interest in our program and we’ve had an unprecedented number of applicants for Summer 2021, much higher than expected. We have limited spaces available, but encourage you to check back again for future dates or to visit our website to see course availability.
