I'm Jim Davies, an associate professor of cognitive science at Carleton University, director of the Science of Imagination Laboratory. I approach cognitive science through artificial intelligence: I create computer models of visualization. My goal is to create a computer program that imagines visual scenes the same way people do, with the same content in the same places.
On March 30, 2010 I gave a TEDx talk titled "The Science of Imagination." You can watch the video above. On October 22, 2011, I gave a TEDxOttawa talk on my educational theory, "Don't Waste Student Work."
If you would like to invite me to come to your organization to give a talk, please see the list of talks I am ready to give.
If you are interested in working with me please see my note to potential collaborators.
