Watch Live: Jim Hogan Presents IR4: The Cognitive Era

Hear expert and SJSU alumnus Jim Hogan discuss today’s Cognitive Era. Cognitive science is a diverse field which is unified and motivated by a single basic inquiry: How does my education, career and life change in the Cognitive Era? How do people, animals or computers “think,” act and learn? To understand the mind and brain, cognitive science brings together methods and discoveries from neuroscience, psychology, linguistics, philosophy and data/computer science.
