The lecture (Vorlesung, VO) and seminar (SE) on Computer Models of
"The Mind" provide an introduction to the domain of computational
Topics addressed include: the notion of
"mind" in scientific disciplines; approaches to mentalizing (theory of
mind); best practice in scientific modeling, cognitive modeling, and
computational cognitive modeling; typologies of computational
cognitive models; cognitive architectures and cognitive systems; and
main paradigms of cognitive modeling.
Each topic is introduced and motivated in terms of specific questions,
challenges, and needs in cognitive science research; presented using
specific and seminal examples; and assessed in a critical discussion
identifying successes, failures, and open issues, as well as the
impact on other areas of cognitive science.
The seminar (SE) offers a highly recommended opportunity to reflect on and "safely exercise" the conceptual information presented in the lecture (VO).
Seminar topics are identified collaboratively, so as to best match individual competences and interests.
