Dr Stringer interviewed on BBC World News

Dr Simon Stringer is interviewed on BBC World News about future developments in computer modelling of the brain and artificial intelligence.

Dr Stringer leads the Oxford Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence, which is based within the Oxford University Department of Experimental Psychology.

Age of the Machines event at The Royal Institution

Members of the Oxford Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence gave a lecture entitled ‘Age of the Machines’ at The Royal Institution in September 2014.

The event was organised and sponsored by the asset management firm CQS with additional support from the foundation.

The lecture was introduced by Sir Michael Hintze, founder of CQS, who discussed the current trends and the potential future impact of artificial intelligence and robotics in manufacturing, business and society.

Dr Stringer described current technical challenges in artificial intelligence and robot control, and discussed how these challenges might be met by advances in understanding brain function.

Dr James Tromans and Dr Daniel Walters discussed their work developing computer models of visual and spatial processing in the brain, respectively. While Juan Galeazzi presented simulations of a new model of animal behaviour that had been developed by Harry Jordan.

Dr Stringer concluded by discussing the possibility of creating machines with artificial consciousness.
