Bio-Inspired Artificial Intelligence

When: Wed, May 10, 7:00pm – 8:30pm, 2017
Where: The Bee, Publika, Kuala Lumpur
Admission: Free
Info: Attend | Venue

The talk will provide a basic introduction to artificial intelligence focusing on how biology contributes to the field. In particular, it will dive into the field of artificial neural networks, discussing some of the basics and then moving onto new insights from biology and how it can help us build more intelligent machines. Speaker Tomás Maul is Head of the School of Computer Science at University of Nottingham Malaysia. [Other examples of bio-inspired systems:
  • Genetic algorithms - 'Survival of the fittest': evolution, mutation, crossover
  • Swarm intelligence - Learning from swarms of birds, bees, ants etc
  • Biomimicry - Clone of bird: plane; clone of human: robot]
