Computational Neuroscience: The Brain-Computer Science Interface

Understanding intelligence is one of the most challenging scientific problems faced by humanity…

This talk will provide an introduction to the multi-disciplinary field of Computational Neuroscience: the questions it seeks to answer and some of the (mathematical & computational) techniques used to investigate how we fundamentally think.

Currently doing his Computational Neuroscience PhD at the University of Cape Town, Chris has a wonderfully weird background in machine learning, neuroscience, and psychology. He is fascinated by how we think and learn, sometimes to a fault, and how this works in both biological and artificial intelligence.
