Dynamic Field Theory Summer School 10 - 14 September 2018

20 Participants from Europe and the US are joining us this week at the INI for the yearly summer school on Dynamic Field Theory. Tutorial introductions into the mathematical concepts of this neurally grounded approach to understanding cognition and sensorimotor processes are complemented by hands-on computer exercises. Over the week, participants are building their own models and implement them in one of two software frameworks. They also have a chance to "act out" their cognitive architecture on autonomous robots in the lab. Participants come from diverse displinary backgrounds ranging from Psychology, Philosopy to LInguistics and Computer Science that match the interdisplinary nature of Dynamic Field Theory

The Institut für Neuroinformatik (INI) is a central research unit of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. We aim to understand the fundamental principles through which organisms generate behavior and cognition while linked to their environments through sensory systems and while acting in those environments through effector systems. Inspired by our insights into such natural cognitive systems, we seek new solutions to problems of information processing in artificial cognitive systems. We draw from a variety of disciplines that include experimental approaches from psychology and neurophysiology as well as theoretical approaches from physics, mathematics, electrical engineering and applied computer science.
