Program</a><span style="font-weight: bold;"> (SSP)</span>
at <a style="font-weight: bold;"
href="http://www.stanford.edu">Stanford University</a>
focuses on computers and minds: artificial and natural
systems that use symbols to communicate, and to represent information. SSP
brings together students and faculty interested in
different aspects of the human-computer relationship,
<li><b>cognitive science:</b> studying human
intelligence, natural languages, and the brain as
computational processes;</li>
<li><b>artificial intelligence:</b> endowing computers
with human-like behavior and understanding; <i>and</i></li>
<li><b>human-computer interaction:</b> designing
computer software and interfaces that work well with
human users.</li>
