  • The Inria's Research Teams produce an annual Activity Report presenting their activities and their results of the year. These reports include the team members, the scientific program, the software developed by the team and the new results of the year. The report also describes the grants, contracts and the activities of dissemination and teaching. Finally, the report gives the list of publications of the year.

Project PsyPhINe: Cogitamus ergo sumus

  • Title: Cogitamus ergo sumus

  • Program: PEPS CNRS

  • Duration: January 2016 - January 2018

  • Coordinator: MSH Lorraine (USR3261)

  • Larsen member: Amine Boumaza

  • Psyphine is an interdisciplinary and exploratory project (see 9.1.1) between philosophers, psychologists and computer scientists. The goal of the project is related to cognition and behavior. Cognition is a set of processes that are difficult to unite in a general definition. The project aims to explore the idea of assignments of intelligence or intentionality, assuming that our intersubjectivity and our natural tendency to anthropomorphize play a central role: we project onto others parts of our own cognition. To test these hypotheses, our aim is to design a “non-verbal” Turing Test, which satisfies the definitions of our various fields (psychology, philosophy, neuroscience and computer science) using a robotic prototype. Some of the questions that we aim to answer are: is it possible to give the illusion of cognition and/or intelligence through such a technical device? How elaborate must be the control algorithms or “behaviors” of such a device so as to fool test subjects? How many degrees of freedom must it have?
