Podcast ‘The Self-Assembling Brain’ with Waseem Akhtar on Bridging the Gaps

November 8, 2021 Interviews News

Bridging the Gaps: A Portal for Curious Minds has released a 1-hour podcast in which Waseem Akhtar and Robin Hiesinger discuss the motivation and thesis of ‘The Self-Assembling Brain’. This is a wide-ranging discussion, starting with the history of neurobiologists arguing about the existence of neurons as physiological units that need to ‘wire up’, to the question: How does information get into any neural network to make it intelligent?
