2019 ASU Cognitive Science Symposium
Supported by the Robert B. Cialdini Leap Forward Fund
Whatever Next? Predictive Brains and the Future of Cognitive Science*
October 18, 2019, 10am-5pm
(Psychology Library, ASU Tempe Campus)
Across areas of cognitive science, new models propose that a basic function of cognition is prediction. We predict when taking a step, when speaking (or hearing) a sentence, when interacting with others; and the brain itself may operate as predictive system.
The symposium consists of talks by three internationally recognized scientists and a panel discussion: (Abstracts)
- 10 am: Andre Bastos (MIT) Theoretical and Neurophysiological Underpinnings for Predictive Coding
- 11:15 am: James Enns (University of British Columbia) Is human perception based on predictive intelligence or ?
- 2 pm: Martin Pickering (University of Edinburgh) Prediction in Language
- 3:30-5 pm: Panel Discussion
