Description: 

Early in the spring of 2018, MIT launched the MIT Intelligence Quest to advance the science and engineering of both human and machine intelligence. This Institute-wide initiative “seeks to discover the foundations of human intelligence and drive the development of technological tools that can positively influence virtually every aspect of society.” At the MIT IQ Launch event on March 1, 2018, several CBMM faculty described their vision of this Quest for Intelligence, highlighting synergies with the scientific mission of the Center.

Tomaso Poggio, Director of CBMM, notes how recent AI successes, such as the AlphaGo system and Mobileye driving assistance technology, have roots in neuroscience, and describes research of the Center on visual intelligence and theoretical aspects of deep learning networks that enable their success.
