Technical mediation of social cognition: minimalist experimental paradigm of perceptual interactions
Monday, June 12th, 11am.
Speaker: Charles Lenay, Université de technologie de Compiègne, France
After presenting the context, issues and ambitions of a technological research in the Humanities as promoted by the COSTECH UTC team, I will give some examples of research in cognitive science. These studies, both scientific, technological and philosophical on perceptual supplementation systems are in line with the so-called "4E" approaches in cognitive sciences (Enactive, Embodied, Embedded, Extended). It is a question of constructing very simple experimental situations to highlight the dynamics of interactions that constitute the skills of social cognition as the "recognition of others", the "perception of her intentions" or "imitation of her facial expressions".
