Intelligence & the Mind
11 December 2017 | Court Room, Senate House London
How is the way we process information being transformed by new forms of intelligence, artificial and social? Every living being interacts with its surroundings, sensing and responding to signals from the environment. Now, the technology we use every day does this too. What can we learn about the nature and functioning of human intelligence?
The last public event of The Human Mind Project will bring together experts from computer science and neuro-economics, science and technology studies, and the philosophy of information, to discuss how humans have become so good at processing information quickly, extracting meaning from raw data, and building powerful narratives of who we are.
