Expertise in Context: Report on the Third International Workshop on Human and Machine Cognition

AI Magazine

The Third International Workshop on Human and Machine Cognition was held in Seaside, Florida, on 13-15 May 1993. Each paper session included presentations on cognitive research, educational research, AI theory and logic, and particular knowledge engineering projects. This mixture encouraged the participants from diverse disciplines to listen and respond to one another. These international workshops are held to allow leading scientists, scholars, and practitioners to discuss current issues and research in particular topics in AI and cognitive science.

The Second International Workshop on Human and Machine Cognition

AI Magazine

The Second International Workshop on Human and Machine Cognition was held on 9-11 May 1991. Participation was limited to 40 researchers who are principally involved in computer science, philosophy, and psychology. The workshop focused on the foundational and methodological concerns of those who want to forge a robust and scientifically respectable AI and cognitive science. The debate between the traditional AI and the situated cognition types and the connnectionists was a focal point for discussion during the workshop.

The Second International Workshop on Human and Machine Cognition was held on 9-11 May 1991. Participation was limited to 40 researchers who are principally involved in computer science, philosophy, and psychology. The workshop focused on the foundational and methodological concerns of those who want to forge a robust and scientifically respectable AI and cognitive science. With the theme of "What do androids know, and when do they know it?" the positions covered a wide range and presented a lot of room for disagreement. The debate between the traditional AI and the situated cognition types and the connnectionists was a focal point for discussion during the workshop.


The First International Workshop on Human and Machine Cognition, Pensacola, Florida. Topic: The Frame Problem

AI Magazine

For some of us, the "Frame Problem Workshop" (as it was called) was an opportunity to discuss a methodological question which has become important in AI and cognitive science: Is the frame problem profound or a mistake?
