The Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence Students’ Association is proud to announce the 8th iteration of the University of Toronto Interdisciplinary Symposium on the Mind (UTism). This year's conference is entitled ‘What to Expect When You're Unexpecting: The Cognitive Science of Disruption’. More specifically, when a cognitive system steps outside of its typical functional constraints, or breaks out of a previously maintained framework -- how does it get itself back on track? On February 3rd and 4th, this idea will be explored from a diverse array of perspectives.
Professor Yang Xu will be among this year's speakers, addressing "Cognitive economy in the emergence of word meanings and forms".
Tickets are $10 for students, and $20 for non-students, plus Eventbrite processing fees. Make sure to use your student email address if buying a student ticket online or your ticket will be refunded!
