Speaker information

Professor Les Valiant, T. Jefferson Coolidge Professor of Computer Science & Applied Mathematics, Harvard University, T. Jefferson Coolidge Professor of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics

Over a lifetime the brain performs a vast number of different cognitive actions, most having some dependence on past experience. This distinguished lecture hosted jointly by The Department of Computer Science & The Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit looks at model neural circuits and associated algorithms that respect the brain's most basic resource constraints and support the execution of high numbers of cognitive actions.

The session will be followed by a drinks reception.
