Curiosity, Creativity and Complexity Conference 2020

May 18-19, 2020

Columbia University

How does the brain cope with Complexity? How do we make decisions when confronted with practically infinite streams of information? On May 18-19, 2020, Columbia’s Zuckerman Institute is hosting a two-day conference dedicated to the idea that Curiosity and Creativity play key roles in this process. 

The conference showcases cutting edge research in Neuroscience and Psychology (neural mechanisms of cognitive control, exploration, decision-making, information demand, memory and creativity), Computer Science (artificial curiosity and intrinsic motivation) and Economics (decision making and information demand). Alongside formal presentations, the conference will encourage ample interactions among faculty, students and postdocs through informal discussions and poster presentations.

Registration and program details will be available mid-February
