WEB SCIENCE AND THE MIND
JULY 7 – 18 2014
Universite du Québec à Montreal
Cognitive Science and Web Science have been converging in the study of cognition:
(i) distributed within the brain
(ii) distributed between multiple minds
(iii) distributed between minds and media
The four themes of the Summer Institute are:
(1) Homologies and analogies between minds and databases
(2) Interactions between individual minds and distributed databases
(3) Interactions between multiple minds and distributed databases
(4) Analysis of organization and activity in minds and distributed databases
