ABCP Webinar: Towards Evolutionary Developmental Artificial Intelligence

14 January @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm GMT

Title

Towards Evolutionary Developmental Artificial Intelligence

Speaker

Professor Yaochu Jin (金耀初教授) MAE FIEEE, Alexander von Humboldt Professor for Artificial Intelligence endowed by the German Federal Minister of Education and Research, with the Faculty of Technology, Bielefeld University, Germany & Distinguished Chair in Computational Intelligence, Department of Computer Science, University of Surrey, UK

Language

The talk will be delivered in English.

Abstract

This talk discusses the main limitations of the deep learning approach to artificial intelligence and proposes to overcome its limitations by means of an evolutionary developmental approach. I will first provide a brief introduction to the evolution and development of biological brain and nervous systems. Then preliminary results on computational modelling of neural and morphological evolution and development are presented. These results reveal that energy minimization is one main principle behind the organization of nervous systems and there is a close coupling between brain and body in evolution and development. Finally, computational models of activity-dependent neural plasticity embedded in the reservoir computing are briefly shown and their influences on the learning performance of echo state networks and spiking neural networks are given. This talk is concluded with an outline of possible future research.
