Workshop: A Turing++ Question: Who is there?

September 3, 2015 - 3:30 pm to September 5, 2015 - 1:00 pm

The Center for Brains Minds and Machines (CBMM) is organizing a workshop on "Understanding Face Recognition: neuroscience, psychophysics and computation" from 3:30pm on September 3rd to 1pm on September 5th, 2015, at MIT in Cambridge. Attendance to workshop is by invitation only.

At the workshop we plan to present the first of the Turing++ Questions , see the CBMM Turing++ Questions.  The focus of the workshop will be on face recognition -- the answer to the question: who is there?  Because our aim is to understand the brain and to replicate human intelligence, we will present computational models of face recognition in the primate brain and evaluate them in terms of human behavior and primate physiology, including fMRI, MEG and single units recordings.  The discussion at the workshop will bring together experts in artificial intelligence, neuroscience, and behavioral sciences. We hope you will be able to participate and contribute to the talks and the discussion.
