Nathan Wilson, Nara Logics CTO & Co-Founder to present at RE•WORK Deep Learning Summit Boston 2016.
Biological Foundations for Deep Learning: Towards Decision Networks
The basic principles of intelligence have been pursued by two parallel research communities – computer scientists developing artificial intelligence, and neuroscientists exploring the brain. Recent advances, particularly in deep learning, present a key opportunity for new homologies and cross-pollination. In this talk we will discuss some of the latest learning rules discovered by each community and their surprising convergence. We will then describe how these rules can be coordinated at scale to take learning networks from perception to decisions, to help solve mature enterprise problems that are ripe for AI applications.
