Hosted in a different country every year, these events are a great opportunity to meet leading experts from computational neuroscience, neuroscience methodology and experimental neuroscience!
Don't miss Prof. Petra Ritter's talk at the Giersch School & International Conference 2023, "Condensed Complexity." Explore the essence of information processing and cognition across various fields, and join us to delve into this intellectual journey.
Prepare to delve into the fascinating realm of "Condensed Complexity" at the upcoming Giersch School & International Conference 2023, a five-day event running from November 6th to 10th. Hosted at the prestigious Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies (FIAS) in Frankfurt, Germany, this conference is set to explore the essence of information processing and cognition across a diverse range of systems, from the human brain to AI and quantum devices.
Unifying Complex Systems
Exploring the shared traits of the human brain, biological networks, developing organisms, the immune system, flocking birds, AI systems, and quantum devices reveals a remarkable convergence. These diverse systems navigate high-dimensional state spaces while condensing their complexity into focused responses to external stimuli.
This phenomenon often arises from low-order, predominantly linear interactions and superpositions. Striking a balance between generating a multitude of solutions and selecting the most apt ones, these processes give rise to new, meaningful system states seemingly from the void. Could these principles underpin knowledge, cognition, and information processing universally?
The conference aims to unravel the commonalities and distinctions among these systems across various fields, including neuroscience, physics, molecular and developmental biology, simulation, machine learning, and quantum computing and sensing.
Prof. Petra Ritter's Insight
Our esteemed Group Leader, Prof. Petra Ritter,, will play a pivotal role in this enlightening dialogue. Join her on November 8th at 14:00 during Session 3: Neuroscience II, as she shares her expertise in a talk titled "Simulating Digital Twins of the Brain". Her presentation delves into the captivating realm of brain simulation, offering insights into its significance in unraveling the intricacies of cognition and information processing.
