Title: Why Cognitive Scientists Should Care About Computational Complexity
Date: Wednesday 22 May 2019
Time: 13:00-14:00
Location: ILLC Common Room (F1.21), Science Park 107, Amsterdam

Computational complexity theory studies the computational resources (e.g., time,
space, randomness, etc.) required for solving computational problems. Its
analytical tools aren't yet commonly taught in cognitive science and many still go
about their business without much concern for the computational resources
presupposed by their theories and models. Yet, there are good reasons for cognitive
scientists to care more about computational complexity. In this talk I will explain
how computational complexity theory provides useful analytical tools to guide and
constrain computational-level theorizing.
