The mission of the Institute of Cognitive Science (ICS) at CU-Boulder is to understand and enhance human cognition, learning, and development through the creation of interdisciplinary partnerships. ICS fosters rich scientific interchange across researchers from a broad range of disciplines including Artificial Intelligence, Linguistics, Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science, Philosophy, and Education.
Cognitive Science is the interdisciplinary study of the mind, brain and intelligence, in both humans and machines.
Our colloquium series features local scholars, distinguished visitors, and panel discussions such as our popular "Converging on Cognition" sessions.
