Intelligence And Neurons: Can We Begin To Build A Bridge?

Sunday August 19, 2012 10:00 pm

MIT I^2 presents a mini-workshop “Intelligence and Neurons: can we begin to build a bridge?” We plan to discuss whether it is feasible and useful to work on (low-level) neural correlates of high-level intelligent abilities, such as social intelligence, language, theory of mind. A panel with optimistic and pessimistic views will argue about what can be achieved in the next 5-10 years and *how*. We hope to get interesting ideas and perspective from the audience. Panel: Matthew Wilson, BCS Dept., MIT Gabriel Kreiman, Harvard U., Children’s Medical Boston Nancy Kanwisher, BCS Dept., MIT Joshua Tenenbaum, BCS Dept., CSAIL, MIT Moderator: Tomaso Poggio, BCS Dept., MIBR, CSAIL, MIT Alternate location 45-3189 (in case of overwhelming attendance)
