What is consciousness, and what is its relation to matter? In what sense might artificial intelligences be able to understand, be creative or even conscious? What kinds of societal implications are to be expected from the rapid developments in artificial intelligence and neuroscience?

Mind and Matter brings together top-level UH researchers from social sciences and humanities, science and technology to tackle these fascinating research problems and provide a radically new understanding of intelligence, consciousness and information.
