Weekly webinar series on augmented intelligence funded by NSF in 2022
The first published products from the workshop have started to be released, including:
- Cognitive Science of Augmented Intelligence—an introductory article in Cognitive Science from the workshop organizers.
Topics fell under the two broad themes of social coordination and human-machine coordination and will include:
- What factors or conditions are important for successful community problem solving?
- How do information, misinformation and disinformation spread in groups?
- How do individual cognitive abilities interact with, and how are they influenced by group characteristics?
- How can the efforts of humans and machines best be combined to solve problems that neither can do on their own?
- What are promising models for thinking about human-machine teams that go beyond supporting human reasoning or actions, to co-creation of novel cognitive systems?
“This workshop brought together social scientists, cognitive scientists, neuroscientists, biologists, computer scientists and education researchers to explore theoretical and applied questions about cognition and learning. These questions go beyond the capabilities of the individual person to consider larger systems that incorporates multiple people, the influences of group dynamics, and tools created to facilitate collective effort and knowledge generation,” says NSF Program Director Soo-Siang Lim.
