We are looking forward to welcoming you to VU Amsterdam Summer School! Previous students exclaimed finding our summer school absolutely wonderful, interesting and fun yet also tremendously helpful for their professional and academic careers.
We understand the situation is very uncertain and we therefore offer free cancellation and a full refund until 1 May. Are you ready to unlock your potential?
This Human AI - Modelling, Simulation and Analysis of Adaptive Human Mental, Social and Health-Related Processes course from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam will present theories and findings from a wide range of disciplines, including various branches of cognitive, social, health and neuroscience, to gain insight into underlying mechanisms of human processes that can be exploited in human AI modeling and simulation.
The various scientific theories form a factual basis for modelling the processes. We can understand these often adaptive mechanisms through causal relations and causal pathways, which we can model as networks.
Using this theoretical framework and the software provided, students can easily simulate a variety of scenarios.
During the second week, students will carry out activities that could lay the foundations for a publication that can be finished later on in the course.
By the end of the course, students will be able to:
- Identify the different types of mental, social, and health-related processes.
- Understand how individual and social behaviour is influenced by the mechanisms identified in various fields of science (cognitive, social, and health) and neuroscience (affective and social).
- Design network models for adaptive mental, social and health-related processes.
- Perform simulations based on these models using the provided Network-Oriented modelling software.

Lectures will address the following topics:
- How emotions affect other processes and how we can manage them.
- The process of mirroring and the emergence of collective understanding and power.
- Mental and physiological models; how we carry out thought processes using internal mental models.
- The learning effects of different mental or physiological models and the control we have over the learning process.
- Social networks; the phenomenon of social contagion, and how relationships change within them.
- Health-related network models.
This course is intended for students or professionals interested in learning more about modelling and the computer simulation of mental, social, and health-related processes.
