Computers and Minds is a specialist workshop featuring presentations by leading academics on computational theories of mind, the cognitive neuroscience of self-consciousness and body awareness, and the implications of the latest advances in artificial intelligence for understanding the human mind. The workshop will be followed in the early evening by a public event, with a presentation by Sethu Vijayakumar on “Robots that Learn: The Future of Man or the ‘Man of the Future’?”, a demonstration on robotics, and a lecture by Andy Clark entitled ‘Being and Computing: Are You Your Brain, and Is Your Brain a Computer?’.
