NASB Institute of Physiology to discuss current problems of brain research

On 11 October 2019, the International Conference “Brain Research. New Neurophysiology Advances” will start its work. Within the framework of the conference, a round table discussion on natural and artificial intelligence will be held. The event is organized by the Institute of Physiology of the NAS of Belarus, the United Institute of Informatics Problems of the NAS of Belarus, and the Center of the Brain.

The topic of artificial intelligence is popular. Scientists create algorithms and programs that, when used in robots and other devices, can solve many problems faster than humans. For example, it is artificial intelligence that actually helps to instantly perform the most complex analysis of histological features in tumor tissue. This is important for surgeons to make decisions during surgical removal of the tumor. On the other hand, there is natural intelligence. The possibilities of this property of the human mind are poorly understood so far. These and other problems will be the focus of attention of those participating in conference and a round table discussion.

The conference will open on 11 October 2019 (Friday), at 9:00 a.m.

The round table discussion “Natural and Artificial Intelligence” will be held at 1:10 – 3:30 p.m.
The conference venue: Institute of Physiology of the NAS of Belarus.
