Oct 10th: Improving Artificial Intelligence by Studying the Brain

We are pleased to welcome Gunnar Newquist to present: “Improving Artificial Intelligence by Studying the Brain”

Current artificial intelligence (AI) only works with big data and lots of processing power, and it only delivers a solution for the particular problem for which it was designed. The next revolution in AI, called artificial general intelligence, is for a machine to learn, plan, and acquire new skills in complex environments.

Gunnar Newquist, CEO of Brain2Bot, received his Ph.D. in Molecular Neuroscience at the University of Nevada, Reno and went on to found Brain2Bot, which is using principles of intelligence derived from neuroscience to build artificial general intelligence.
Newquist will discuss how neuroscience can help us deliver AI that is both safe and effective and how some of the biggest advances in AI have been inspired by advances in neuroscience.

The meeting will be on Monday, October 10th, 6-8 pm at Pizza on the Hill, in Tahoe Donner at 11509 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee. A $5 fee includes pizza and salad. Before and after the presentation, there will be time for networking with other technology professionals who live and work in the Tahoe-Truckee region.
