Discussion Topics for July 23

1.)   The dominant topic for tomorrow is a discussion of the mathematics of ‘situations’.  Recall Barsalou’s work stating that the fundamental unit of cognition is a situation.  Dr. Oxley will lead a discussion on the application of category theory to QUEST, fusion and ‘situations’, which we will define as concepts in context.

Back to Fridays

All,

It seems as if Fridays remain the best day for the majority of our group, so we will plan on moving the weekly meeting day back to Friday, starting this week.  Meeting time will still be 1200-1300.

Thank you.

QUEST Discussion Topics
July 15, 2010
1.)  This week’s meeting will again involve a Second Life discussion, bringing into the room Melissa Seifman and Mark Sturgell from the Tec Edge Virtual World effort.  We hope to talk more about the capabilities available to us inside of Second Life, particularly what can be captured from what sorts of interactions, how we can export/process those interactions, and how can we use this processing to impact the learning/teaching experience for the STEM effort.
2.)  We also have an interesting article from some Chinese researchers about an ‘Uncertain belief test’.  The article, for those interested, can be obtained from the link below.
