We are delighted to welcome Celeste Kidd, Assistant Professor of Psychology at UC Berkeley as the opening headliner at World Summit AI Americas this March in Montreal, talking about ‘How to Know’.

Celeste’s research focuses on about how people come to know what they know. The world is a sea of information too vast for any one person to acquire entirely. How then do people navigate the information overload, and how do their decisions shape their knowledge and beliefs?

How to Know

In this talk, Celeste will discuss research from her lab about the core cognitive systems people use to guide their learning about the world—including attention, curiosity, and metacognition (thinking about thinking). The talk will discuss the evidence that people play an active role in their own learning, starting in infancy and continuing through adulthood. Celeste will explain why we are curious about some things but not others, and how our past experiences and existing knowledge shape our future interests.

 

She will also discuss why people sometimes hold beliefs that are inconsistent with evidence available in the world, and how we might leverage our knowledge of human curiosity and learning to design systems that better support access to truth and reality.
