The Many Faces of Relevance (Finnish Cultural Foundation Workshops in Science)

Project Details

Description

We live in a tremendously complex world. The ability to filter through the irrelevant and focus on the relevant are essential skills to survive and compete in the modern society. Moreover, the ability to assess relevance is one of the factors that underlie the remarkable flexibility and impressive capability of the human mind.

This series of science workshops focuses on the problem of understanding and modeling relevance. The aim of the workshops is to outline the state of the research in various fields - including philsophy, psychology and computer science - to gain insights and bring together researchers with common interests. Moreover, the purpose is to open up new empirical and methodological avenues for research of relevance and to clarify its theoretical role in various scientific domains.
