Discussion will be moderated by Prof. Tomaso Poggio
MIT has announced a new institute wide initiative: The MIT Intelligence Quest [MIT iQ]
Prof. Poggio will lead a discussion about the new initiative, the upcoming launch on March 1, 2018, and possible involvement of CBMM community members.
MIT iQ mission statement:
Forging connections between human and machine intelligence research, its applications, and its bearing on society.
The MIT Intelligence Quest will advance the science and engineering of both human and machine intelligence. Launched on February 1, 2018, MIT IQ seeks to discover the foundations of human intelligence and drive the development of technological tools that can positively influence virtually every aspect of society.
The Institute’s culture of collaboration will encourage life scientists, computer scientists, social scientists, and engineers to join forces to investigate the societal implications of their work as they pursue hard problems lying beyond the current horizon of intelligence research. By uniting diverse fields and capitalizing on what they can teach each other, we seek to answer the deepest questions about intelligence.
