CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Radical Post Cognitivism: new approaches to intelligence and the mind, 13th Mar 2012, Goldsmiths College, LONDON


Mark Bishop, the Chair of AISB, invites you to his inaugural Professorial lecture, "Radical Post 
Cognitivism: new approaches to intelligence and the mind", at the Ian Gulland Lecture Theatre, 
Whitehead Building, Goldsmiths College, at 5:30pm Tuesday 13th March 2012.
.


An abstract for the lecture is appended below; if you would also like to attend the 
Warden's reception after the lecture, please reply to .


ABSTRACT:  
In this presentation i will illustrate how the hegemony of the computational metaphor 
enabled the paths of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Cognitive Science to run hand in hand for 
much of the last 60 years. Subsequently, with reference to specific elements of my own research, 
I will review arguments that suggest computational explanations of mind will ultimately fail and 
conversely argue that cognitivist approaches to the most complex, real-world, engineering problems 
have long been overtaken by newer, more powerful AI methods grounded in the world of large data 
sets and statistics. Stressing the importance of the body, I will conclude my talk by sketching a 
new, radical, post-cognitivist metaphor for cognitive processes that shifts emphasis from "abstract
computations" to "embodied interactions".
