AIAS Conference: The Thinking Machine: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Neural Networks

Info about event


Thursday 23 August 2018,  at 09:00 - 15:00

Dear researchers and students,


Interested in Thinking Machines? We encourage you to join the two-day international and interdisciplinary conference The Thinking Machine: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Neural Networks held on 21-23 August 2018 at the Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies (AIAS).


The conference will focus on the background, theory and applications of neural networks in a cross-disciplinary manner. International researchers from the natural and social sciences as well as the humanities will present and discuss their work, addressing the broad range of ways in which ‘thinking machines’ are expected to have an impact on our future lives. By bringing together research on brain, physics, AI, media and social structures, we seek to enhance the discussion and development of neural networks not only as a tool for pattern recognition, but also as an evolving technology with enormous social impact.
