The lecture (Vorlesung, VO) and seminar (SE) on Computer Models of "The Mind" provide an introduction to the domain of computational cognitive modeling.
Candidate topics to be addressed include: the notion of "mind" in scientific disciplines; the scopes of notions of "mind"; best practice in scientific modeling, cognitive modeling, and computational cognitive modeling; typologies of computational cognitive models; cognitive architectures, cognitive systems, micro-, macro-, and integrated models; 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), and to take a more extended and/or closer look.
Seminar topics are developed collaboratively, so as to best accommodate individual competences and interests.
