Sarah will be part of the Technical Committee of IEEE CIS Cognitive and Developmental Systems in 2017

This organization is known as the Cognitive and Developmental Systems Technical Committee (CDSTC) of the Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) of the IEEE.The purpose of the CDSTC is to promote the research, education and outreach about understanding the mechanisms of development and acquisition of sensorimotor, cognitive and social structures in machines and animals. It focuses in particular on computational and robotic modeling of cognitive and developmental systems for two goals:

  • build machines capable of life-long adaptation and interaction with the physical and social world
  • use machines as tools to understand better human and animal development and cognition
