The LHM programme:

"Learning in Humans and Machines"

Short description
The mission of this programme is to advance our knowledge about learning from an interdisciplinary perspective, bringing together - on a European scale - researchers from cognitive science, in particular from the areas of psychology, computer science (AI), and educational science.

The programme is funded and supported by ESF and is directed by Pr. Spada in Freiburg.
