The first CogSai LIVE is this Thursday, June 7th at 11am PDT / 2pm EDT / 8pm CEST.
Sai will be talking with Dr. Wim De Neys in depth about his recent paper, Bias and conflict: A case for logical intuitions (http://www.wdeneys.org/data/perspecti...), about how our intuition handles conflicts between heuristic and analytic thinking.
You can read the paper in advance, and contribute your questions or comments for Dr. De Neys at cogsai.com/q3 — either now, or live, if you tune in during the interview!
Sometimes a bit of philosophy of mind is very helpful to tease apart a complex phenomenon. ;-)
Also: if you want to learn how to set aside your own emotions, Buddhist "non-attachment" oriented meditation techniques are quite effective.
Cognitive science is a combo of psych, AI, philosophy, neuroscience, linguistics, anthro, sociology, and lots more. CogSai includes short illustrated explanations, live interviews with researchers, and group discussions.
