Abstract

The Second International Workshop on Human and Machine Cognition was held on 9-11 May 1991. Participation was limited to 40 researchers who are principally involved in computer science, philosophy, and psychology. The workshop focused on the foundational and methodological concerns of those who want to forge a robust and scientifically respectable AI and cognitive science. With the theme of "What do androids know, and when do they know it?" the positions covered a wide range and presented a lot of room for disagreement. The debate between the traditional AI and the situated cognition types and the connnectionists was a focal point for discussion during the workshop.
