Interdisciplinary College 2017

Last week, I participated in this year’s interdisciplinary college (https://www.interdisciplinary-college.de). In the course of this spring school, I was able to meet many other students working on exciting research projects. By taking lectures, I acquired basic knowledge of neuroscience, some ideas about creativity (both from the behavioral/neural viewpoint as from the AI perspective) and many impulses on language grounding in robotics.

I was also able to present my overall PhD research project (“Concept Formation in Conceptual Spaces”) both during the poster session and as a “rainbow course” lecture. On both occasions I got very valuable feedback and stimulating impulses for my further research. I’ve uploaded the respective resources in case you are interested: the pdf file of my poster and the slides of my presentation.

Long story short: it was a great week with a lot of input and impulses. 🙂
