Cognitive Informatics and Statistics Lab

Lab Director: Dr. Richard M. Golden

What is Cognitive Informatics?

Cognitive Informatics is the multidisciplinary study, design, development, and evaluation of intelligent information processing systems using theory, knowledge, and methods from multiple fields, including cognitive science, cognitive psychology, neuroscience, machine learning, mathematical statistics, usability engineering, and computer science.

Research Objectives

The primary objective of the COINS lab is to develop, refine, and evaluate formal theories of cognitive and neural information processing systems for the purpose of advancing our knowledge of the mind and brain while developing enhanced artificially intelligent technologies.

A secondary major objective is to research and develop innovative technologies to facilitate and extend the information management capacity of individuals as well as assess and improve human instructional, learning, and assessment processes.
