Beschreibung: The “Profillinie: Kognition: Mensch-Technik-Interaktion” at Osnabrück University is dedicated to dialogues across disciplinary lines. More specifically, part of its work focuses on cognition and knowledge production, on how our brains, minds, and technologies make sense of the world. On this common ground, the envisioned lecture series on concepts, methods and theories of interdisciplinary collaboration is meant to initiate a new collaboration between the different disciplines. Its specific goal is to intensely interrogate the central concepts, terminological register, and the crossroads, if not compatibility of the diverse methods coming into play in “Sense-Making: Turning Information Into Knowledge”. What are the processes, strategies, and mechanisms by which different disciplines assign meaning in natural and artificial systems in order to render information plausible and be able to assess and guide our interactions with these systems. By engaging expertise from psychology, artificial intelligence, biology, linguistics, literature, philosophy, and other disciplines the project seeks to arrive at both a fuller and yet nuanced and detailed understanding of how sense-making works in and across apparently different domains.
