Collins Conference Room
Working Group

All day


Our campus is closed to the public for this event.

This working group brings together scholars from diverse fields—neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, and AI—who are all investigating the broad notion of “intelligence”, whether in biological systems or in machines. The working group will enable sustained, long-form discussions on similarities and differences in cognitive capabilities among humans, animals, and machines, how fair and useful assessments of these capabilities can be carried out,  the nature of “understanding”, and the prospects for general principles underlying diverse intelligences.
