Contents:In order to be a good scientist and a good practitioner within the fields of Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence, it is important that you are up to date with the latest theories and models in your field. Moreover, you should be able to critically evaluate such research. For example by being critical about its contribution, the applied method, and its application. Once you understand these theories, you should be able to develop your own new hypotheses, experiments, and models based on existing theory such that you can further science and practice. You will train these skills in this course. Specifically, you will gain insight in the various novel findings within Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence, in particular as made by researchers at Utrecht's department of Psychology and department of Linguistics. You will discuss research with the PIs that conducted the research, you will critique this work, and you will develop your own research proposals that build on this and other work.
Minimum effort to qualify for 2nd chance exam:To qualify for the retake exam, the grade of the original must be at least 4.
