Artificial intelligence offers a vast variety of applications, among them the potential to help us unlock the mysteries of the brain. At the same time, the advancement of AI is tied to a better understanding of the workings of the human brain and the processes underlying learning, memory formation, and decision-making.

This month’s DWIH Coffee Talk takes a closer look at the two-way relationship between neuroscience and AI. Moderator Axel Karpenstein (DWIH Tokyo) is in conversation with Dr. Nicolas Schuck (Max Planck Institute for Human Development) and Dr. Mingbo Cai (International Research Center for Neurointelligence, Principal Investigator at The University of Tokyo). Together they will discuss the basic processes underlying learning, memory, and decision-making, how recent research in neuroscience can help improve AI systems, and whether artificial intelligence will be smarter than human intelligence at some point.
