Second International Conference on Biologically Inspired Cognitive
The challenge of creating a real-life computational equivalent of the human
mind calls for our joint efforts to better understand at a computational
level how natural intelligent systems develop their cognitive and learning
functions. The focus of BICA 2011 includes:

   - - BICA models of robust learning mechanisms;
   ⁃ models of perception, cognition and action;
   ⁃ emotional and social intelligence in artifacts;
   ⁃ vital constraints informed by neuroscience,
   ⁃ human-like episodic and semantic memory;
   ⁃ metacognition, human-like self-regulated learning, bootstrapped and
   ⁃ language acquisition and symbol grounding;
   ⁃ the “critical mass” for cognitive growth in a learning environment,
   scalability of learning;
   ⁃ the roadmap to solving the challenge
   - (see also the tab Program).
