UNDERSTANDING THE HUMAN BRAIN - THINKING AND RE-THINKING MAN AND MACHINE
The Uppsala University Switzerland Alumni Chapter, the Human Brain Project (HBP), the Swedish Swiss Chamber of Commerce (SSCC) and Uppsala University have the pleasure of inviting you to an evening to understand and discuss the latest developments in neuroscience, artificial intelligence, medicine and robotics.
Behind every artificial intelligence (AI) device, self-driving car, self-learning robot and smart building, hides a variety of advanced algorithms that control learning and decision making. Some of the mathematical models that make up the backbone of advanced automated systems are currently under construction by researchers from Uppsala University and EPFL in Lausanne and Geneva.
We have invited senior researchers and industry leaders to discuss how we learn from the brain to build robots and computers of tomorrow, how to better understand and ultimately to treat diseases of the brain and how to integrate neuroscience research data into computer models and simulations.
