Systems of symbolic representations such as found in mathematics, science, and logic, allow us to solve problems we could not solve with our brain alone. Thus, language can be seen as a tool to make us smarter. However, some tools may be a better fit to our brain than others.
Bram van Heuveln will present two interfaces for learning logical reasoning that are more visual, and thus potentially more effective, than the standard linear algebraic expressions taught in a typical course on logic.
Bram is also the Assistant Director of Rensselaer Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning (RAIR) Lab and Director of Minds and Machines.
