The lab has submitted three wonderful abstracts to this year's 4th Multidisciplinary Conference on Reinforcement Learning and Decision Making at the McGill University in Montréal. They introduce research around our intelligent cognitive tutor and cover aspects of overcoming present bias, inspecting cognitive decline, and a process-related approach to trace the evolution of planning skills. We keep our fingers crossed!
We have submitted a great set of papers to this year's 41st Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society (CogSci) in Montreal. A historic moment for the lab! We will continue this proud tradition in the years to come.
Behavioral and Brain Sciences has accepted our target article “Resource-rational analysis: understanding human cognition as the optimal use of limited computational resources”. According to the editor we have set a new record with our 53 page long response to the reviewers!
Good news! Our paper “Doing more with less: Meta-reasoning and meta-learning in humans and machines” has been accepted for publication in Current Opinion in Behavioral Sciences.
Maria Wirzberger has joined our lab as a postdoc. Her work will primarily focus on executive functions training and intelligent cognitive tutors. She holds a multidisciplinary background that spans psychology, education, and computer science and recently submitted her Ph.D. thesis at TU Chemnitz. Welcome Maria!
From September 3-6, 2018 the 14th biannual conference of the German Society for Cognitive Science (GK) was held at the Technische Universität Darmstadt. Contributing to the main topic of the conference "Computational Approaches to Cognitive Science", we presented our work on cognitive tutors, which won the best poster award!
