The new era of Artificial Intelligence: a cognitive perspective

Big data, machine learning, AI algorithms are intensely disputed and acclaimed nowadays. Currently we are assisting to growing investments in computational models simulating neurocognitive functions (e.g. the Human Brain Project) and this trend will probably be enhanced in the near future (Communication Artificial Intelligence for Europe, 25 April 2018) especially in the fields of Machine Learning and Robotics.

What is the role of Cognitive Science in this debate?

The AISC Conference 2018 will focus on this topic, (re)discussing the new idea of AI (as compared to the one historically proposed by McCarthy, Minsky, Brooks, Lenat, Rumelhart and McClelland among others) bringing into discussion ideas from Neurocognition, Epistemology and formal Linguistics among other relevant Cognitive Science sub-fields.
