Intro to Cognitive Science Camp
Session And Dates:
Intro to Cognitive Science Camp : July 6-10, 2020
Ages: Rising 9th-12 grades
Time: 1-2 pm
Instructor: Karen Carroll
Program description: What is consciousness? Can artificial intelligence replicate it? What is it like to be a bat? What are human minds good at and not good at? In this camp, we will not answer these questions, but we will talk about them (and others!), as well as what cognitive scientists have to say about them. Cognitive science is the study of the mind, and it incorporates psychology, philosophy, computer science, linguistics, and more. There may be some short reading assignments.
