Brain, Mind & Learning at Carnegie Mellon
Carnegie Mellon University has been a leader in the areas of brain science, psychology, and learning research for many decades.
With the launch of the university’s new brain, mind & learning initiative, CMU now plans to become an even bigger player in these fields, while distinguishing ourselves from other brain research programs.
How? Two ways, really.
- First, CMU has a top-ranked computer science school, and our brain researchers are taking full advantage of it. Like CMU faculty in other disciplines, brain, mind and learning researchers have a track record of leveraging the university’s world-class strengths in computation (e.g., artificial intelligence and automated learning) to answer scientific questions that are too complex for humans to figure out by themselves.
- Second, CMU faculty have consistently demonstrated a willingness to break down disciplinary barriers, reaching across departments and centers to work together to solve real-world problems.
