MIT I2 presents a mini-workshop "Intelligence and Neurons: can we begin to build a bridge?"




We plan to discuss whether it is feasible and useful to work on (low-level) neural correlates of high-level intelligent abilities, such as social intelligence, language, theory of mind. A panel with optimistic and pessimistic views will argue about what can be achieved in the next 5-10 years and *how*.

We hope to get interesting ideas and perspective from the audience.
