Cognitive Science is the scientific study of various process of Mind and it includes Artificial Intelligence. It deals with Thought Process and Higher Functions. The components of Cognitive Science is varied ranging from psychology, artificial intelligence, philosophy, neuroscience, linguistics to anthropology. As other than Artificial Intelligence, about which wrote before; are components of a living being, Cognitive Science can be thought as a vast subject of Mind and Artificial Intelligence. The number of cognitive scientists has not yet reached triple digits as Cognitive Science needs a huge knowledge on varied topics.
Cognitive Science : Development and Architectures
The cognitive science, was constituted in the context of for the developments described based on a central assumption that the computer will be able to think like a human. This takes the fact that the brain is an information processing machine which basically works like a computer. The distinction between mind and brain are analogous to software and hardware as per that taken definition of that time.
The computer model of the mind has undergone sharp changes in recent decades. This has lead a distinction between the ideologies – one group believes on the old theory that Mind and Thought are just like output of the hardware – software interaction so logically process like Mind Uploading can be performed and another group relies on other not yet proven factors which basically can nullify the remote possibility of Mind Uploading.
But development in a science or study can not be done without properly defined definition keeping the original scientists’ hypothesis and proceeding by defining Cognitive abilities and cognitive architectures of mind. Cognitive Science and Human Biological Science can not be isolated by any means.
Cognitive Science and Human Though Process
The architectures which has been made for the proper development of Cognitive Science are Problem Solving, Cognitive Architectures, Language understanding of people etc. and Cognitive Science itself has been subdivided in to various Cognitive Science associated subjects including Cognitive neuropsychology, Computational neuroscience and obviously Psychology itself.
