From Neuroscience to Artificially Intelligent Systems (NAISys)
Organizers Raia Hadsell (DeepMind, United Kingdom), Blake Richards (Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms, Canada), and Anthony Zador (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory) have announced a new Cold Spring Harbor conference at the intersection of neuroscience and artificial intelligence, which will begin at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, March 24 and run through lunch on Saturday, March 28, 2020.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and neural networks have long drawn on neuroscience for inspiration. However, in spite of tremendous recent advances in AI, natural intelligence is still far more adept at interacting with the real world in real-time, adapting to changes, and doing so under significant physical and energetic constraints. The goal of this meeting is to bring together researchers at the intersection of AI and neuroscience, and to identify insights from neuroscience that can help catalyze the development of next-generation artificial systems.
