The Golden Age: A Look at the Original Roots of Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science and Neuroscience

Position posted on Feb. 11, 2011

Project Description: This project would require the UROP to research and compile a historical review of the development of AI, Cognitive Science and Neuroscience at MIT. This research would predominately involve the history of the researchers and the work tied to the former 'Building 20'. The project also involves compiling digital images of artifacts related to MT research and cataloging anecdotes regarding research at MIT. One goal is to inform a faculty member's presentation on the history of Cognitive Science, AI and Neuroscience at MIT for the sesquicentennial symposium on Brains, Minds and Machines this May.

Prerequisites: No formal prerequisites but an interest in the history of science and some familiarity with AI, Cognitive Science or Neuroscience will be important.
