Workshop on Intelligence and Abilities (SCIoI/Human Abilities – Centre for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, HU Berlin)

This two-day workshop, co-organised by the Berlin-based Science of Intelligence Cluster and Human Abilities – Centre for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, brings together philosophers and cognitive scientists to discuss the relationships between intelligence and abilities in humans, nonhuman animals, and artificial systems. Is intelligence best seen as an ability? How to understand cognitive abilities and skills to start with? How can we investigate abilities and intelligence philosophically and scientifically?

The workshop will take place on 22 and 23 March from 2–6:30pm (CET), and the speakers are:

Ellen Fridland (London)
Romy Jaster (Berlin)
Dimitri Coelho Mollo (Berlin)
Carlotta Pavese (Cornell)
Martin Rolfs (Berlin)
Barbara Vetter (Berlin)

The workshop will take place on Zoom, with social gatherings on Wonder. To register, please write an email to communication@scioi.de.
