We aim to create a new field — the Science and Engineering of Intelligence — by bringing together computer scientists, cognitive scientists, and neuroscientists to work in close collaboration. This new field is dedicated to developing a computationally based understanding of human intelligence and establishing an engineering practice based on that understanding.
Each NSF Science and Technology Center establishes an External Advisory Committee (EAC) that convenes annually. The function of the EAC is to provide guidance, advice, and direction for all of the Center's activities, consistent with its vision, goals, and objectives. The EAC includes members who can assess each aspect of the project including management, research, education, innovation, and knowledge transfer.
