Berkeley ACM A.M. Turing Laureate Lecture: Towards a Conscious AI: A Computer Architecture Inspired by Neuroscience

Colloquium | October 17 | 4-5 p.m. | Sutardja Dai Hall, Banatao Auditorium

Manuel Blum, UC Berkeley

Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Thanks to major advances in neuroscience, we are on the brink of a scientific understanding of how the brain achieves consciousness.
