Mind and Matter seminar is launching this spring!

In what sense might artificial intelligences be able to understand, be creative or even conscious? What kinds of societal implications are to be expected from the rapid developments in artificial intelligence and neuroscience? Can we understand the deep nature of matter and information down to the quantum level? This spring researchers of the Mind and Matter profiling area are presenting their exciting research at the Mind and Matter seminar.

The sem­inar dates and speak­ers are: 

16.4.2021 14.00-15:30 Riikka Möttönen and Luigi Acerbi: How cognitive resources affect learning in humans and machines. Watch the seminar session here
