Cracking the Code: Understanding Consciousness and AI
Public Research Project on Consciousness and AI with Creative Cluster, Chicago University and Institute for Future Technologies
Generative AI, ChatGPT and the like, have changed our life and will change it even more. Still, there are some questions that remain unanswered, many professionals avoiding them, some of them being: “what is AI?”, “does Artificial intelligence exist?” leading to more general “what is intelligence and consciousness?”.
At the fund table we will not try to answer these questions, rather providing up-to-date research findings from both neuroscience and data science, as both disciplines study similar subject-matters from very different angles.
Join us if you are curious about whether major attributes of consciousness can be identified and located in the brain; what the difference is between AI and ML, and challenges of neuroscience and data science of the day.
The round table will take place October 10 at 15.00. It will be held online and in English.
