TOP REVIEWS FROM WHAT IS “THE MIND” AND WHAT IS ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE?
Very interesting course with a basic level. Topics are addressed in a very general way. Topics are of philosophical importance and motivates you to think more about them.
Really good course. Absolutely loved it! The last week's content was difficult to understand. But overall, it was an insightful journey. Definately recommend it :)
This gives a decent overview and a starter towards interests in Computational Cognition, giving necessary background in the evolution of the research area.
Gives you a lot to think about. A great introduction to thinking about computational complexity and the mind vs the machine.
About the Mind and Machine Specialization
This specialization examines the ways in which our current understanding of human thinking is both illuminated and challenged by the evolving techniques and ideas of artificial intelligence and computer science. Our collective understanding of “minds” – both biological and computational – has been revolutionized over the past half-century by themes originating in fields like cognitive psychology, machine learning, neuroscience, evolutionary psychology, and game theory, among others. This specialization focuses on both the larger “historical” arc of these changes as well as current research directions and controversies.
