As part of the School of Science and Technology's Computing Informatics Research Seminar Series Professor Eleni Vasilaki, University of Sheffield, UK presents: Learning in Brain Circuits, inspiration for neural computing.

Abstract

Neuroscience has long been an inspiration for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. In this talk I will present some fundamental ideas about biological learning, and how these are related to Machine Learning.  More particularly I will discuss how simple concepts from the 1940’s underline ideas about memory formation in both artificial and natural systems. I will then proceed to recent experimental and theoretical results and discuss what do they tell us about the way information is encoded in different brain areas. I will also show how these results not only inspire Artificial Intelligence but also future electronics, and present concrete examples where novel electronic circuits demonstrate functionality akin to biological circuits.

All Welcome
