From Computer Metaphor to Computational Modeling: The Evolution of Computationalism
Class meets weekly on Wednesday pm in Meyer Computational modeling plays an increasingly important role in the social and behavioral sciences. This introductory course provides a broad survey of computational approaches to human behavior. Topics will be organized around interests of students in class, however, the core concepts we will cover are the goals and philosophy behind developing models and basic issues in model evaluation, testing, and fitting. Readings and lectures will survey a broad set of approaches to modeling cognitive processes with an emphasis on what are traditionally considered "higher-level" cognitive processes. In other words, we'll aim to cover a relatively broad set of topics in formal modeling. If you have taken Math Tools in the psych department, or had linear algebra or calculus as an undergrad you will be in the best position for approach the material.
Computational cognition sometimes referred to as computational cognitive science or computational psychology is the study of the computational basis of learning and inference by mathematical modeling , computer simulation , and behavioral experiments. In psychology, it is an approach which develops computational models based on experimental results. Early on computational cognitive scientists sought to bring back and create a scientific form of Brentano's psychology . There are two main purposes for the productions of artificial intelligence: to produce intelligent behaviors regardless of the quality of the results, and to model after intelligent behaviors found in nature. Until s, economist Herbert Simon and Allen Newell attempted to formalize human problem-solving skills by using the results of psychological studies to develop programs that implement the same problem-solving techniques as people would. Their works laid the foundation for symbolic AI and computational cognition, and even some advancements for cognitive science and cognitive psychology. The field of symbolic AI is based on the physical symbol systems hypothesis by Simon and Newell, which states that expressing aspects of cognitive intelligence can be achieved through the manipulation of symbols.
Computational modeling plays a central role in cognitive science. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to computational models of human cognition. It covers major approaches and architectures, both neural network and symbolic; major theoretical issues; and specific computational models of a variety of cognitive processes, ranging from low-level e. The articles included in the book provide original descriptions of developments in the field. The emphasis is on implemented computational models rather than on mathematical or nonformal approaches, and on modeling empirical data from human subjects. David E. Meyer, David E.

Computational modeling is now ubiquitous in psychology, and researchers who are not modelers may find it increasingly difficult to follow the theoretical developments in their field. This book presents an integrated framework for the development and application of models in psychology and related disciplines. Researchers and students are given the knowledge and tools to interpret models published in their area, as well as to develop, fit, and test their own models. Both the development of models and key features of any model are covered, as are the applications of models in a variety of domains across the behavioural sciences.

In this paper, I argue that computationalism is a progressive research tradition. Its metaphysical assumptions are that nervous systems are computational, and that information processing is necessary for cognition to occur. First, the primary reasons why information processing should explain cognition are reviewed.

Компьютер висел уже почти двадцать часов. Она, разумеется, знала, что были и другие программы, над которыми он работал так долго, программы, создать которые было куда легче, чем нераскрываемый алгоритм. Вирусы. Холод пронзил все ее тело. Но как мог вирус проникнуть в ТРАНСТЕКСТ.
Он попытался сделать из апельсиновой кожуры джем, но чтобы можно было взять его в рот, в него пришлось добавить огромное количество сахара. Так появился апельсиновый мармелад. Халохот пробирался между деревьями с пистолетом в руке. Деревья были очень старыми, с высокими голыми стволами. Даже до нижних веток было не достать, а за неширокими стволами невозможно спрятаться. Халохот быстро убедился, что сад пуст, и поднял глаза вверх, на Гиральду.
