Intelligence & the Mind

Intelligence & the Mind
11 December 2017, 10.00am - 5.30pm
The Court Room, First Floor, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU

How is the way we process information being transformed by new forms of intelligence, artificial and social? Every living being interacts with its surroundings, sensing and responding to signals from the environment. Now, the technology we use every day does this too. What can we learn about the nature and functioning of human intelligence?

The last public event of The Human Mind Project will bring together experts from computer science and neuro-economics, science and technology studies, and the philosophy of information, to discuss how humans have become so good at processing information quickly, extracting meaning from raw data, and building powerful narratives of who we are.


S. M. Amadae (Helsinki & MIT), Luciano Floridi (Oxford), Natalie Gold (KCL), Mary Morgan (LSE), Drazen Prelec (MIT), Paul Smart (Southampton).

The event will be introduced by Barry Smith (University of London) and chaired by Mattia Gallotti (LSE & University of London).


The workshop will open with registration and coffee at 9:30, with talks starting promptly at 10:00 am. The event will be followed by a wine reception.
