International Summer School on Agent-based Computational Models of Creativity

The International Summer School on Agent-based Computational Models of Creativity is an intense one-week summer school that centers on agent-based models of creativity, focusing on the domains of music and language. The school contains background lectures that introduce concepts from biology, anthropology, psychology, music theory and linguistics, as well as technical lectures on the fundamental computational components required for language processing and technical ateliers to learn how to set up evolutionary linguistics experiments. It is aimed at students and postgraduates who want to gain confidence in solving computational issues in state-of-the-art cognitive systems, and learn how to set up evolutionary linguistics experiments with autonomous embodied agents. Each technical atelier will be tightly focused on a particular topic, ranging from computational construction grammar to embodied cognitive semantics on robots.

Event dates: 15 – 20 September 2013 in Cortona (Italy)
