Former BCNM director and executive committee member David Bates gave a presentation at the Center for Science, Technology, Medicine and Society detailing the connection between the growth of automaticity and artificial intelligence and the evolution of human understanding and conceptualization of our own thought process. Bates’ discourse drew from the post-WWII linking of human thought processes with that of artificial intelligence to expand to a much broader look at how human understanding of our mental processes and thoughts are shaped by the technological changes in the world around us, and the implications of this to not only the basis of cognitive science and psychology, but also to our notions of human nature itself.
