Paris Mathematical Models of Cognition and Consciousness (PMMC2)

Scope

The scope of the seminar encompasses mathematical and computational models of cognition and consciousness. Its aim is to stay updated on novel findings and emerging computational frameworks related to cognition and consciousness. The particularity of this seminar is to go into the technical details (mathematical and formal) of these models and the associated results. The sessions are longer than usual seminars (2h).

We will try our best to record the session, and the videos will be posted on our YouTube channel: Visit Our YouTube Channel
