Two PhD student positions and one postdoctoral position on "Cognitive systems in interaction"


The Vici project 'Cognitive systems in interaction: ?Logical and computational models of higher-order social cognition'

Software agents are capable of recursion in their social reasoning: A thinks about what B knows that A knows, and so on. However, humans lose track of such reasoning after only two or three levels. If software agents work together with human team-mates, they need to take into account the limits of their social cognition.

In the Vici project, we investigate children's development and adults' limitations in applying higher-order reasoning, using a close-knit combination of empirical research and formal modelling. Whereas first-order social cognition has been intensely investigated, higher-order social cognition is far less well-understood. This Vici project aims to apply improved understanding of higher-order social reasoning to design realistic logics, ready for implementation in systems supporting mixed human-computer teams.?
