Area 3: Neural networks, modelling and artificial intelligence
The brain is composed of tens of billions of neurons and many more synapses, which form networks wired with unparalleled precision and complexity. How do these networks produce the signals that govern movement, perception, thought, memory and even prediction of the future? The meteoric progress of AI, developed on the basis of fundamental concepts of biological neural computation, provides new and very powerful analysis tools to answer these major questions. These tools need to be constantly adapted to new data flows generated by the complexity of the parameters and experimental situations implemented. The goal of this axis is to catalyze the transfer of the latest advances in AI in the Ile-de-France neuroscience and cognitive science community, by strengthening interactions between neuroscience and AI actors.
