Cognitive Modeling

duration 1 week
fee EUR 250

Due to the covid-19 outbreak, all programmes for 2020 have been cancelled.

We are happy to announce the fifth Groningen Spring School on Cognitive Modeling (March 30 to April 3, 2020). This year, the Spring School will again cover four different modeling paradigms: ACT-R, Nengo, PRIMs, and error-driven learning. It thereby offers a unique opportunity to learn the relative strengths and weaknesses of these approaches.

Moreover, this year we are offering a lecture series on dynamical systems, which should be interesting for anyone looking into modeling cognitive dynamics at some level of abstraction. We recommend this lecture series as an excellent combination with Nengo, for those interested in neuromorphic computing.

The first day will provide an introduction to all five topics. From day two, spring school students will be asked to commit to one topic, for which they will attend lectures as well as tutorials. In addition, students can sign up for a second topic, for which they will attend lectures only. All students are invited to join a series of plenary research talks on the different paradigms. On the first day, spring school students are asked to introduce themselves and their research interests in a poster session.

Target group

Students of artificial intelligence and cognitive engineering

Course aim

The summer school offers a unique opportunity to learn the relative strengths and weaknesses of the four approaches (ACT-R, Nengo, PRIMs and Accumulator).
