Cognitive science

MAJOR

Overview

Effective navigation through the current flood of large-volume, unstructured data requires a new era of computing known as cognitive systems. Cognitive systems learn and interact with people to extend what either humans or machines could do on their own. IBM Watson* is just one example of a cognitive system demonstrating the capacity to answer natural language questions, acquire information, process large amounts of disparate data and learn through repeat interaction.

This major sequence provides students with the fundamental knowledge and technical skills required to design and develop new cognitive computing applications fuelled by Watson’s intelligence (as well as other types of smart machines).

Subject areas include: psychology, understanding the mind, thinking systems and cognition science, human behaviour and computer interaction, and data visualisation and decision making.
