Advanced Topics in Computer Science: Computational Models of Cognition

COS 597B

Info tab content
This course provides an overview of computational models of human cognition. Computational modeling is one of the central methods in cognitive science research, and can help to provide insight into how people solve the challenging problems posed by everyday life, as well as how to bring computers closer to human performance for some of these problems. The course explores three ways in which researchers have attempted to formalize cognition - symbolic approaches, neural networks, and probability and statistics - considering the strengths and weaknesses of each.
