Jazmyne Ross graduated from William Jewell College with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. She is a second-year student in the Master of Science in Psychological Science (MSPS) program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is studying attention and perception with Dr. Frances Wang.
How does the human brain function and which computational models best imitate cognitive processing? What allows us to navigate and manage distortions in geometrically impossible environments? I am interested in understanding the brain’s algorithms and its ability to exploit constraints in order to transfer them into systems that use artificial intelligence. I am particularly interested in the types of rules spatial representations must abide by and if people can be taught to navigate within non-euclidean environments. Additionally, I would like to explore connections between perception and artificial intelligence systems.
