Richard M. Golden

Richard Golden is Professor of Cognitive Science in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences and Participating Faculty Member in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Texas at Dallas.

Professor Golden is the Director of the COgnitive INformatics and Statistics laboratory . Cognitive Informatics is the multidisciplinary study, design, development, and evaluation of intelligent information processing systems using theory, knowledge, and methods from multiple fields, including cognitive science, psychology, neuroscience, machine learning, mathematical statistics, usability engineering, and computer science.

Professor Golden's current research focus is concerned with the development of new educational technologies incorporating recent advances in psychometrics and statistical machine learning for the purpose of improving the quality of personalized instruction and personalized assessment using Artificial Intelligence (AI). Specific details regarding Professor Golden's research interests may be found on his faculty profiles home page . Additional publications are listed on Professor Golden's Google Scholar Home Page .

For an easy to follow introduction to machine learning and artificial intelligence, check out Professor Golden's podcast Learning Machines 101: A Gentle Introduction to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning . For a more advanced introduction to machine learning and artificial intelligence, check out Professor Golden's recent book Statistical Machine Learning: A Unified Framework published in the Chapman & Hall/CRC Texts in Statistical Science Series .

In addition, Professor Golden is Program Head of the Undergraduate Cognitive Science Program and Program Head of the Graduate Applied Cognition and Neuroscience Program . Students interested in the Masters Program in Applied Cognition and Neuroscience (ACN) as well as undergraduate Cognitive Science students will find the November 2020 ACN Orientation presentation filled with useful information about Cognitive Science related career paths and opportunities.

Finally, feel free to connect up with Professor Golden on LinkedIn . Many of the graduates from our undergraduate Cognitive Science and graduate Applied Cognition and Neuroscience programs are hooked-up via LinkedIn with Professor Golden so this is a great way to "network" with alumni of our programs!!!
