EVOL.&LANG.: Evolutionary origins of language and of cognition
NARRATIVE: Cognitive modelling of interest in conversational narratives
ARGUMENTATION: Cognitive modelling of relevance in argumentative discussions
MEANING: Cognitive modelling of meaning
|CONVERSATION: Cognitive modelling of spontaneous conversation
EMOTION: Cognitive modelling of emotional intensity
LEARNING: Cognitive modelling of concept learning
CONSCIOUSNESS: Qualia cannot be epiphenomenal (but the expl. gap is intact)
EMERGENCE: Emergence as complexity drop
EVOL.&INFORM.: Evolution and information
|Emergence takes place in an observer’s ‘mind’. The observer needs not be a human.
It is characterized by a sudden complexity drop when considering a collective.
Emergence can be studied in human or artificial societies, where individual agents may be aware of patterns emerging at the collective level.
