Uniwersytet Jagielloński w Krakowie presents the eighth Una Europa Masterclass workshop for PhD students, held under the DIGITALIZED! Society in the Era of Digital Revolution project.

Una Europa Masterclasses are a few days of meetings between world-leading scientists, entrepreneurs, science managers, and opinion-makers to discuss a selected, vital problem falling within the thematic scope of the project. PhD students from Una Europa universities interested in the workshop topic are invited to apply.

Please note: This Masterclass will take place online.

The eighth Una Masterclass workshop will be conducted by Mateusz Hohol Associate Professor at the Uniwersytet Jagielloński w Kraków (Dr. habil. in psychology, Ph.D. in philosophy). Mateusz is affiliated within the Copernicus Center for Interdisciplinary Studies at Jagiellonian University and is Principal Investigator of the Mathematical Cognition and Learning Lab, Jagiellonian University. His research focuses mainly on the cognitive science/psychology of mathematics, i.e. cognitive processing of numbers and geometric structures, as well as conceptual and methodological issues in cognitive (neuro)science.

Masterclass Title: Digital Mind

Since the dawn of cognitive science, researchers have made efforts aiming to explain the mind in computational terms. While disputes over the nature of the mind are still ongoing, more and more cognitive scientists agree that computation-based artifacts transform our cognition. Our minds have become digital minds. The workshop will consist of three main modules focused, respectively, on:

  1. Wide approaches to cognition (embodied, embedded, extended, enactive, and distributed);
  2. Substituting, complementing, and constituting cognition via digital technology-based cognitive artifacts;
  3. Cognitive ecology of the Internet and smart devices.

About DIGITALIZED!

The aim of the DIGITALIZED! Society in the Era of Digital Revolution project is to develop new methods to intensify the cooperation between the universities of Una Europa, and to conduct scientific research. The project also endeavours to popularize and educate. Moreover, the additional goal is to implement and carry out projects in the socio-economic environment that are connected with the impact of the digital revolution which influences changes in the social world.

DIGITALIZED! is financed by the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange as part of the Academic International Partnerships programme. The project also supported a special edition of Una Europa Seed Funding, the results of which were recently announced. Head to our DIGITALIZED! story to learn about the six successful projects.
