Synopsis:

In this course, students will be introduced with selected engineering psychology and cognitive science, and will, in mutual creative discussion, integrate it in a meaningful whole. In addition familiarize students with interesting topics of modern science and techniques (such as deterministic chaos, emergentism, holonic and multi-agent systems and very young science discipline of Cognitive Science), will also create space for thinking about scientific and technical issues

across disciplines and also their interpretation of the intercepts mutual integration. Last but not least, the subject will spread technical considerations for people. Completes the course will be introduction to modern theories of science and their critical evaluation.

Requirements:

Active participation on seminars, semestral work elaboration

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Engineering psychology fundamentals (history, principles, applications).

2. Casuistics of use some use of engineering psychology.

3. Bionics fundamentals (classic cases and applications).

4. Cognitive science fundamentals - a demonstration of a multidisciplinary approach in science.

5. Basic knowledge of psychology and philosophy of integrated CS (mind-body problem, cognitive psychology, structuralism, gestaltism).

7. Multiagent systems (the path from a centralized to a distributed approach).

8. Knowledge ontology of multiagent systems.

9. Holonic systems (the path from the multi-agent approach to the holonic problems, production fractaling).

10. System approach and system dynamics and deterministic chaos.

11. Emergent phenomena and the possibility of their synthesis.

12. Fractal theory as a solution to the problem of part / whole (introduction to theories and their applications).
