Course plan

No of lectures

Approximately 10 lectures/seminars (exact number depends on number of participants)

Recommended for

The course is mainly intended for PhD students (and possibly masters students) in cognitive science, but could also be interesting for PhD students in computer science with a focus on human-computer interaction of artificial intelligence. The course could also be relevant for PhD students in psychology, neuroscience, philosophy or other areas overlapping with the cognitive sciences.

The course was last given

Comments

A closely related masters course is also given for the cognitive science masters program, and therefore the PhD course is relatively independent of how many PhD students take it.
