Mutuazione: 20710637 Introduzione alle scienze cognitive in Scienze della Comunicazione L-20 MARRAFFA MASSIMO


This course will provide an introduction to cognitive science by exploring some topics of research in this multidisciplinary field. Cognitive science is the study of cognition as information processing by complex organisms or artificial systems; thus it is not a discipline, but rather a “doctrine” that has oriented and is orienting inquiries in a number of disciplines — some descriptive and empirical (e.g., cognitive psychology, linguistics and, more recently, neuroscience), some speculative and foundational (e.g., philosophy of mind), and some both speculative and applied (e.g., artificial intelligence and robotics).
