introduction

The Human and Machine Intelligence group is a new interdisciplinary research group funded under the Humanities Informatics Lab The focus is on aspects of informatics that relate to knowledge, representation, learning, interpretation, and understanding. These concepts are being reshaped by progress in artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science, neuroscience, and associated disciplines. The forum fosters interactions between the humanities and these areas to produce mutually beneficial links between the two. The group emphasizes both research and educational activities at the faculty and student levels.
