Jack Gallant: Reverse-Engineering the Human Brain

Jack Gallant, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, UC Berkeley

The human brain is the most sophisticated computer system known to man, capable of impressive feats under challenging natural conditions. Reverse-engineering the brain might enable us to design artificial systems with the same capabilities. Gallant’s laboratory uses a data-driven approach to tackle this reverse-engineering problem. He will discuss how this framework could form the basis of practical new brain-reading technologies and inform development of biologically inspired computer vision systems.
