25.05.2018, “Are Sensing Technologies Cognitive? Making the Case”
1. ZeM Spring Lecture mit N. Katherine Hayles, 18 – 21 Uhr
As programmable and networked computers move into the world with increasingly complex sensing systems, traditional questions about machine intelligence cease to be very useful to understand and conceptualize these developments. This talk will focus on cognition rather than intelligence and will compare the perspectives of biosemiotics on sign systems in biological organisms with the sensing capabilities of artificial cognitive systems. The issue is not simply terminological but rather illuminates what is at stake in designing and implementing sensing networks, especially in understanding the relation of such systems to the cognitions of their human designers and users.
