Brain-Computer Interfaces and Brain-Inspired AI

About this Event

• What are the differences and similarities between biological neurons and artificial ones ?

• How the visual cortex inspired the development of multilayer perceptrons.

• Fundamentals of brain implants and how machine learning is helping decode neural data.

• Problems that need to be solved before we can achieve real time neural interfaces: The Elon Musk vision.

William Redmond is a post doctoral fellow in the department of Biomedical sciences at Macquarie university. He will introduce the core concepts of brain implants, and the modalities through which it is possible to both record and stimulate brain activity. Then he will discuss the importance of machine learning as a tool to decipher neural behaviour. Finally, he will talk about the current challenges in the field.

Ilya Kuzovkin is a PhD student the Computational Neuroscience Lab of University of Tartu, Estonia and a Machine Learning Architect at OffWorld Inc., Pasadena CA, US. He will provide a systematic approach to understanding the differences and similarities between artificial and biological networks. He will also discuss how structures in the brain have inspired modern AI.
