It would be nice to be able to study self-organizing systems without needing
to be engaged in a post-graduate math or physics program. Or AI without
needing a bullet-proof computer science and math background. Or cognitive
neuroscience without a degree in biology, or psychology.
The technical nature of these subjects require substantial preparation. But
by not addressing these topics at the undergraduate level, I think too much
of the "good stuff" is saved 'til later and not many students get exposed
The technical nature of these subjects require substantial preparation. But by not addressing these topics at the undergraduate level, I think too much of the "good stuff" is saved 'til later and not many students get exposedto them.
I think there is plenty of material that could be reduced and simplified to an undergraduate survey level and integrated in a one semester - or even one year - class. This would doubly serve the purposes of exposing many more people to these fascinating topics, as well as presenting an integrative perspective that will benefit them in their later studies.
