Welcome! You have reached the 590 associated with the Assisted Cognition Project. Please check us out. We will be discussing recent work in
Each week someone will either present a recent paper from the literature, or some of their own research.
The mailing list for this course is the same as the one for general announcements about the Assisted Cognition Project, namely:

Access to online copies of the readings is possible if you are on a machine inside of UW or have a CSENetID. If you cannot access the directory using any of those methods please email Henry Kautz <firstname.lastname@example.org>.in order to be mailed a copy of the papers. Discussion leaders should prepare a brief (15 minute) overview of the paper(s). If we run out of time to discuss both papers, then we will discuss it the following week.
