Conference on the Mathematical Theory of Deep Neural Networks:Read More
Recent advances in deep neural networks (DNNs), combined with open, easily-accessible implementations, have made DNNs a powerful, versatile method used widely in both machine learning and neuroscience. These advances in practical results, however, have far outpaced a formal understanding of these networks and their training. The purpose of this conference is to give visibility to these results, and those that will follow in their wake, to shed light on the properties of large, adaptive, distributed learning architectures, and to revolutionize our understanding of these systems.
Related From Neuroscience to Artificially Intelligent Systems (NAISys)
Postponed: COVID-19: Because of the ongoing COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2 outbreak, CSHL and the organizers have reached the difficult decision to postpone the meeting on From Neuroscience to Artificially Intelligent Systems originally scheduled for March 24-28, 2020 until November 8-12, 2020.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and neural networks have long drawn on neuroscience for inspiration. However, in spite of tremendous recent advances in AI, natural intelligence is still far more adept at interacting with the real world in real-time, adapting to changes, and doing so under significant physical and energetic constraints. The goal of this meeting is to bring together researchers at the intersection of AI and neuroscience, and to identify insights from neuroscience that can help catalyze the development of next-generation artificial systems.
