On Tuesday March 22, NWO and SNN organise a one day symposium entitled Intelligent Machines, where we present an overview of recent developments in this fast evolving field. The meeting aims to establish a dialogue and to build connections between academic research, industry and public institutions in the Netherlands. The program of the day will consist of a number of international invited speakers, and plenty time for networking during poster and exhibition sessions. The aim is to present a very comprehensive overview Dutch academic and industrial research.
We conduct research on the computational principles that underlie natural and artificial intelligence. Intelligent behavior is learned by adapting to the environment; it requires integration of sensory data with prior knowledge; and it must be robust to noise.
The research goal is to provide theoretical insights, models and methods that address these issues combining methods from machine learning and neuroscience. Particular topics are approximate methods for probabilistic ′Bayesian′ inference, control theory, neural networks and data analysis. The research results are applied in diverse fields outside of science together with our spin-off company SMART Research BV.More about SNN and SMART Research BV
