Dylan Holmes

I am a PhD candidate in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT.   I am interested in using computational models to help us understand how humans think.

I work with the Genesis story-understanding group in CSAIL and I'm part of the Center for Brains, Minds, and Machines.

Story-enabled hypothetical reasoning (2017). My S.M. Thesis on how much of human intelligence depends upon understanding what could have otherwise happened, and how we can model this intelligence using a story-based framework.


I've written up several of my projects on my personal site, logical.ai.


Here are my teaching materials for 6.034: Introduction to Artificial Intelligence.
