In the interdisciplinary workshop “Interacting Agents in Natural and Artificial Environments” we will discuss key questions on self-consciousness and social interactions in natural and artificial environments.
This event is a joint endeavor connecting two interdisciplinary projects and CFCUL Permanent Seminar on Philosophy of Sciences.
The joint workshop will take place on October 13th-14th 2022 in hybrid format, i.e. in person in Lisbon and via Zoom.
The workshop brings together world-leading scholars and junior researchers from philosophy, neuroscience, psychology, robotics and computational neuroscience, to address the following (non-exhaustive) key questions:
i) what is an interacting agent in natural and artificial environments?
ii) what is the relationship between self-consciousness and social interactions in natural and artificial environments?
iii) what are the mechanisms underpinning multisensory integration of self and world-related information in biological versus artificial agents?
iv) what is the relationship between artificial intelligence and artificial embodiment?
