Hybrid event

Wolf Singer and Hannah Monyer

Artificial Intelligence research and development continues to advance, but does it live up to its name?
The world's foremost neuroscientist, Wolf Singer, vehemently disagrees...
vehemently. Every thought and every natural perception is the result of millions of connections in the human brain. Artificial intelligences, however, lack the essential characteristics of natural neuronal networks. This means that they lack the ability to develop new ideas.
Together with Hannah Monyer, he explores the question in dialogue: Can't artificial intelligence do much more than correlate, connect and select alternatives?

Prof. Dr. Wolf Singer is emeritus director of the Frankfurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and founding director of the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies (FIAS), the Brain Imaging Center (BIC), the Ernst Strüngmann Forum and the Ernst Strüngmann Institute (ESI).

Prof. Dr. Hannah Monyer is Medical Director of Clinical Neurobiology at Heidelberg University Hospital.
