CF Participation: AIIB Symposium at AISB10 Convention

Two-day Symposium on AI-Inspired Biology (AIIB)
   (Not Biologically Inspired AI -- BIAI!)


The web site for the multi-disciplinary AIIB symposium has been updated

   NB: Last day for lower cost early registration is Monday 1st March:

INVITED TALKS (Thanks to support from EuCogII):

# Prof Margaret Boden, Sussex University,
   will lead the "where next" discussion in the closing session.

# Prof Kim Bard, Portsmouth University (Provisional: Something on
   animal cognition: understanding the process of development in

# Prof Nick Chater (UCL) Biological and cultural foundations of
   human language: Insights from computer simulations.

# Dr. Richard P Cooper, Reader, Birkbeck College London "Forward and
   Inverse Models in Motor Control and Cognitive Control"

# Prof Richard L. Lewis, University of Michigan (Provisional: On
   motivational mechanisms.)

# Prof Antje Meyer, Birmingham University (Provisional: On cognitive
   aspects of speech production.)

# Dr. Anil Seth Reader, School of Informatics, University of Sussex
   (Provisional: will talk about consciousness.)

# Prof Murray Shanahan, Imperial College London,
