On September 27th, the Johns Hopkins AI-X Foundry Fall 2023 Symposium held a symposium and this year’s topic was on Charting a New Course: Navigating the AI in Research Traditions. The AI-X Foundry called on “researchers, scientists, academics, students, industry professionals, and anyone interested in the cutting-edge applications of AI in research and knowledge creation” to present and attend.
Cognitive science studies human minds by using artificial minds (computer systems) as a model. This includes cognitive tasks such as natural language processing, problem solving, and decision making. Cognitive scientists have much to contribute to the field of AI.
We are pleased that Cognitive Science was strongly represented at the symposium lightning talks and poster sessions.
