The Interdisciplinary College (IK) is an annual, intense one-week spring school which offers a dense state-of-the-art course program in neurobiology, neural computation, cognitive science/psychology, artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics and philosophy. It is aimed at students, postgraduates and researchers from academia and industry. By combining humanities, science and technology, the IK endeavours to intensify dialogue between the various disciplines. Participants come mainly - but not exclusively - from European countries, lecturers from all over the world.
IK2018's focus theme is Me, my Self, and I and addresses questions such as: Who am I? Where is my self? What is it like to be me? In doing so, we will address different aspects of self models, self perception, and self consciousness using different epistemic and theoretical approaches in a truly interdisciplinary fashion.
