About

This Mind and Machine specialization offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Colorado Boulder 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.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

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 Mind and Machine specialization offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Colorado Boulder focuses on both the larger “historical” arc of these changes as well as current research directions and controversies.

Applied Learning Project

By completing the Mind and Machine specialization, students will be able to: (1) demonstrate their understanding of topics and strategies through quizzes, and (2) discuss and debate different arguments and interpretations of philosophical issues in discussions and peer-reviewed activities.

Courses included:

  • What is “the mind” and what is artificial intelligence?
