Pucón Learning and AI Summit


Chile, April 8 -12, 2024

Where neuroscience meets AI

The Summit will aim to explore the intersection of neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence (AI), with a particular focus on mechanisms of learning. This event will provide a platform for AI and experimental neuroscience researchers to delve into the mechanisms of learning at the cellular, systems, and behavioral levels.

The meeting aims to address three fundamental questions that have been the subject of intense
research and theoretical debate:

What cellular mechanisms
enable learning on different

How do brain networks
modify their connectivity to
support adaptive behaviors?

How do popular AI learning
algorithms relate to
biological mechanisms of
learning at the cellular and
systems levels?

The emphasis will be on exchanging information between theoretical and experimental scientists.
How can AI generate testable predictions for neuroscientists?
How can neuroscientific discoveries inform the next generation of AI models?
