I work mainly at the intersection of Philosophy of Mind and Science, Neuroscience and AI. My research aims to advance the scientific investigation of capacities of perception, thought, and action. I do this in part by working to clarify what we learn about these capacities through the study of brains and artificial neural networks. I am especially interested in examinations of mind in movement; I wonder about how mentality is reflected in different kinds of movement, about the various senses in which movement can be intelligent, and about the best ways of exploring these scientifically.
Ongoing Dance | Cogsci | AI study
I'm currently working on a comparative analysis of human and AI recognition of dance genre.
You can participate in the study by playing this guess-the-genre game.
Once we collect enough data, we will see how people's genre-judgments depend on dance-relevant experience
And see how their judgments compare to those of our AI algorithm. You can see the preliminary code on github.
