If you have a question about this talk, please contact Per Kristian Lehre.

Under the heading of “high level cognition” I include systems that are “responsible for perception, learning, reasoning, decision-making, communication and action” (www.foresight.gov definition of cognitive systems). By “we” I mean researchers interested in psychology and cognitive neuroscience, philosophy and logic, AI, autonomous agents and robotics. The talk will include examples from work on medical reasoning, decision-making and planning, and draw some lessons from lab experiments, formal “rational” theories, and the design of systems for supporting clinicians in their routine practice. My conclusion about underlying principles is broadly optimistic, but the aim of the talk is to stimulate discussion and invite alternative views.

This talk is part of the Artificial Intelligence and Natural Computation seminars series.
