APPLYING COGNITIVE SCIENCE
The core of “cognitive science” is based around understanding the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding, through thought, experience, and the senses. This field brings together linguists, programmers, psychologists, neuroscientists, philosophers, among others with the shared goal of developing models of how we acquire, perceive, and use information as well as how to replicate or improve these process. Historically, people who pursued cognitive neuroscience tended to follow more technical or research focused paths. Yet the field of applied cognition aims to translate scientific findings and models into actionable applications. The term “cognitive” is being increasingly used in applications such as sports performance analysis, various forms of therapy, group dynamics optimisation, decision-making, and educational material. Together with our panel, we will discuss how researchers translate cognition based lab research to a variety of real world applications, and explore the similarities and differences in the goal of cognitive tools and models in academia and industry. We are delighted to have Prof David Lagnado (UCL: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/lagnado-lab/david_lagnado.html) and Charlotte Kemp (The Fred Company: http://thefred.company) join us.

What we're about

Neuroscience is set to be one of the most high growth industries in the next 5 years. It influences our experience of the world, the advancement of technology ( AI ), and the augmentation of our cognitive abilities. It will touch every aspect of our lives.

Neuroscience is also going through a change as it bridges its transition into industry. The movement is driven by both an industry need for more sophisticated tools and a desire for the discipline to move beyond academia.

In short, it is a great time to be curious about and work within neuroscience, and, we think, the perfect time to activate this meet-up in order to unify the neuroscience community.

The group will has three main objectives

1// A platform of educational and practical events

2// A platform for collaboration between supporting sciences and interested industries

3// A showcase platform for rising neuroscience based enterprises

We want this to be an open and collaborative community, so any suggestions or ideas do send us an email.
