Felix A Sosa
I'm a PhD student at Harvard's Department of Psychology and MIT's Center for Brains, Minds, and Machines.
The mind of a newborn poses an incredible set of questions: What learning procedures and cognitive architectures are people born with? How do these procedures and architectures allow people to repeatedly and reliably develop intelligent, common-sense behavior? How did these procedures and architectures evolve and what are the programs governing their development over childhood?
I use the rich space of theoretical computer science, programming languages, and evolutionary theory to rigorously address these questions, advance our understanding of the generative processes behind human intelligence, and build AI with common-sense reasoning.
I'm primarily advised by Tomer Ullman, Sam Gershman, and Josh Tenenbaum and am currently funded by the Harvard Prize Fellowship.
