Projects on Mind-Reading Machines
To what extent can a machine know the inner workings of a person's mind, even theoretically? This course explores this question through a mixture of hands-on machine learning and critical discussions on theory. In this course, students will practice ML techniques on a provided corpus of data to produce a working brain-computer interface. Simultaneously, students will engage critically with recent research in ubiquitous sensing technologies, and the discourse around them, tracing ideas to their origins in cognitive science.
This 1-unit course takes place in the second half of the semester, continuing the themes of Info 290T. Mind-Reading and Telepathy for Beginners and Intermediates through a student-led research project.
