The fields of cognitive science and artificial intelligence are old friends, having grown up together. Cognitive science draws on insights from computer science, statistics, neuroscience, linguistics, psychology and philosophy to better understand how people represent the world around them. A.I. draws on these same insights to design agents that can perceive the environment and act upon it. This conversation will explore the interplay between these two fields, discussing examples where A.I. algorithms provide ideas about how human intelligence might operate, and where human intelligence informs the design of artificial intelligences.
