This 2016-2017 academic year, we will present a new series of workshops sponsored by John and Claire Radway. We will be hosting workshops on quantum mechanics and consciousness, the hard problem of consciousness, machine consciousness, and zombies.
The CEC is a research initiative at CSLI which is devoted to studying explanations of consciousness. The CEC hosts talks and symposia from a variety of viewpoints exploring the nature of conscious experience in humans and machines, including human-machine fusion. We also sponsor reading groups during the term, led by faculty and graduate students.
