About this Event

Complete information at imaginesciencefilms.org/ny12

Even as we make rapid strides in machine learning and artificial intelligence, even as long-held hopes of robots joining us at work and at home come closer to reality every year, still the human brain we dream of emulating remains elusive. The mind may be the ultimate emergent effect -- so far a mechanical understanding of the brain can only shed so much light on what we experience as thought and self-reflection. But not only higher order mysteries like consciousness and identity retain may secrets, but even the seemingly simpler workings of perception and memory. We have learned much, but much remains unknown and these mysteries only deepen as we continue our attempts to reconstruct the mind in circuitry. These films move between brain and program, neuroscience and computer science, neurons and circuitry, and the complex and fruitful spaces that may lie between.
