About this event
The annual half-day UCL NeuroAI event features speakers working across the spectrum of machine learning to neuroscience and aims to foster further collaboration and discussion.
This will be an in person event and will also be live streamed. This event is open to both UCL and non UCL attendees. If you are unable to join us in person, please choose the online ticket when registering. Registration is necessary in order to receive final details.
The last decade has seen phenomenal advances in the fields of machine learning (e.g. deep learning, reinforcement learning, and AI). While these changes have already had considerable impact on most areas of science they hold a particular resonance for neuroscience.
Crucially, AI shares a common lineage with neuroscience and fundamentally machine learning and the brain employ similar computations to process and compress information. For these reasons AI provides a means to emulate neural functions and the circuits supporting them, providing insights to aid our understanding of the brain and cognition.
Equally, AI tools provide a means to discover, segment, and track distinct neural and behavioural states - yielding more efficient experiments and accelerating the pace of discovery. In turn, this understanding feeds back into the design of more effective AI architectures and models.
Essentially, AI problems posed in neuroscience both require and inspire further advances in AI.
Our confirmed speakers include:
Professor Peter Latham (Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit, UCL)
Dr Raia Hadsell (DeepMind)
Professor Blake Richards (McGill University)
Dr Kim Stachenfeld (DeepMind)
