Date Time&Place Speaker Title Abstract
Wed, 27.04. 11:00-13:00, TS O1.19 and Zoom Introduction: Prof. Dr. Christoph v.d. Malsburg. Moderator: Dr. Ricardo Chavarriaga Panel Discussion: Pathways beyond present AI Artificial intelligence has made very important and impressive progress in recent years. Yet, in terms of ability to learn from few examples and generalize from them the human (or even animal) brain beats technology by orders of magnitude, as is admitted even by the exponents of that development. Convinced that the time is ripe for a breakthrough in understanding the nature of intelligence we want to explore this front by organizing, under the title "Pathways beyond Present AI" a short series of interdisciplinary panel discussions that bring together expertise from various fields spanning technology and biology. The first of these discussions will focus on recent insights into the way the structure of self-organized neural circuits acts as bias tuning the brain to the natural environment.
