Douglas Hofstadter, the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Gödel, Escher, Bach, thinks we've lost sight of what artificial intelligence really means. His stubborn quest to replicate the human mind.

Event schedule:

13:00 - Talk, Stephen Larson, OpenWorm.org
14:00 - Open Q&A / Discussion

The OpenWorm project is a unique experiment in open science with the aim of creating a computational model of the nematode C. elegans which incorporates unprecedented levels of biological and physical detail. The model will be freely available as open source software from the start and will incorporate known details of the neuronal and muscular systems as well as an advanced fluid mechanics simulation engine for body-environment interactions. The work is carried out by an international team of neuroscientists and computer programmers, mostly on a volunteer basis. A successful Kickstarter funding campaign in May 2014 is accelerating the goal of making this model accessible to anyone through their web browser. This presentation will outline the aims of the project, the resources which are currently available and future plans for the initiative.

After the presentation (14:00-16:00) there will be an open discussion session where the members of the OpenWorm core team will be present for any questions related to the project, to help with installing the software produced by the initiative, or to discuss incorporating experimental data into the models.  

See http://www.openworm.org/science.html for more details.
