On today’s episode, we’re joined by Terrence Sejnowski, Francis Crick Chair, head of the Computational Neurobiology Laboratory at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies and faculty member at UC San Diego. In our conversation with Terry, we discuss:

  • His role as a founding researcher in the field of computational neuroscience, and as a founder of the annual Telluride Neuromorphic Cognition Engineering Workshop.
  • We dive deep into the world of spiking neural networks and brain architecture,
  • the relationship of neuroscience to machine learning, and ways to make NN’s more efficient through spiking.
  • Terry also gives us some insight into hardware used in this field, characterizes the major research problems currently being undertaken, and the future of spiking networks.
