The graduate students of the University of Missouri-St. Louis invite high quality paper submissions by graduate students. The topic “Intelligence: Human, Animal, Machine” was chosen to inspire paper submissions from diverse disciplines and philosophical approaches. We share a few research questions to represent this range; however, it’s not required or expected that papers specifically address any of these questions:
- Is there anything unique about human intelligence?
- What is the relationship between consciousness and intelligence?
- What are the ontological and/or epistemic criteria for comparing intelligence?
- To what extent do the laws of nature constrain intelligence? Is it limitless?
- Is all intelligence epistemic?
- How can we teach self-driving cars to drive like humans? Or is it possible to program morality?
- What are the moral considerations surrounding the development of artificial intelligence?
- What are the methodological concerns with researching animal cognition?
Papers should be no longer than 3,500 words. Submissions should be prepared for blind review, and submitted with a separate cover sheet including name, institutional affiliation, contact information, paper title, word count, and an abstract of no more than 300 words. They can be sent to email@example.com. All submissions are due by January 15, 2019. We will respond to those submitted regarding their acceptance within three weeks of the deadline.
