We offer a number of courses at the intersection of human-computer interaction and systems-building technology used to innovate in this space.

Current offerings:

  • Practicum In Data-Enabled Research Into Human Behavior And Its Cognitive and Neural Mechanisms

    In this interdisciplinary project course, graduate students will work in mixed teams to develop an artifact that addresses a research question and/or infrastructure need in the intersection of cognitive science and artificial intelligence. Students will learn principles of design by participating in the stages of brainstorming, specification, initial design, prototyping, refinement, and evaluation. The artifacts created by this course could include online showcases, demonstrations, tutorials, blogs, scientific papers, and software components to support further research.
