Trends Cogn Sci. 2018 May;22(5):365-367. doi: 10.1016/j.tics.2018.02.008. Epub 2018 Feb 27.


Understanding the computational principles that underlie complex behavior is a central goal in cognitive science, artificial intelligence, and neuroscience. In an attempt to unify these disconnected communities, we created a new conference called Cognitive Computational Neuroscience (CCN). The inaugural meeting revealed considerable enthusiasm but significant obstacles remain.

Keywords: artificial intelligence; cognitive science; computational modeling; machine learning; neural networks.
