The Centre for Cognitive Science at the Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar hosted the second edition of CogniTalks on November 16, 2018. Like last year, CogniTalks 2018 had an eclectic group of experts to engage in a series of talks about human cognition. Understanding human cognition is increasingly becoming vital in modern science, technology, art, and design. New technologies are beginning to incorporate principles of how we perceive the world, learn and remember information, make decisions and interact with the environment.

This innovative event’s aim was to bring together experts from different fields to interact and discuss how humans think and act. Designers, architects, and philosophers discussed the finer points of human behavior. Students and academics from NID, NIFT, IIM, DAIICT and other neighbouring institutes were also invited to this event.
