The Symbolic Systems Program (SSP) at Stanford University focuses on computers and minds: artificial and natural systems that use symbols to represent information. SSP brings together students and faculty interested in different aspects of the human-computer relationship, including…
cognitive science: studying human intelligence, natural languages, and the brain as computational processes;
artificial intelligence: endowing computers with human-like behavior and understanding; and
human-computer interaction: designing computer software and interfaces that work well with human users.
Symbolic Systems Forums are held on Thursdays at 4:15 PM in 380-380C (Math Corner) during school terms. Most are open to the general public.
