COMPUTING AND THE BRAIN
Leitung: Michael Stadtschnitzer und David Laqua, Fraunhofer IAIS
Will computers supersede humans in cognitive tasks in the near future? Never before have we had such capabilities as today to study the brain and for the first time computer scientists can boldly claim that their mathematical models, deep neural networks, can surpass humans in some of their cognitive abilities.
This workshop aims at giving you enough insight into these topics to form your own well-grounded opinion. It will give you an opportunity to learn about the fascination of the brain and of neural computing.
Can your brain learn something about itself? Can you bring in the right mixture of computer skills and mathematics needed to catch a glimpse of neural processing? Then do not hesitate, join our workshop for a look into the brain and its mathematical and technical abstractions.
English is the language of communication for all scientists. If you enjoy communicating in English, bring in basic programming skills, and do not understand “cool mathematics“ as an oxymoron, you are prepared for this experience.
