ABSTRACT:

Understanding the activities of an animal or human mind in algorithmic terms
seems to be about the greatest challenge offered to computer science by
nature. In computer science, the respective cognitive information processing
systems are studied within a new computational paradigm of cognitive
computing recently introduced by L. Valiant. This paradigm faces computer
science with a number of new exciting research problems. In the talk we
will discuss dozen problems concerning cognitive systems in general and
computational models of the brain or mind in particular, as seen from the
viewpoint of computer science.
