The aim of the workshop is to advance our understanding of how biological and artificial systems solve sensory motor challenges. We will bring together speakers who work on the problems of recognition and action from diverse perspectives: cognitive neuroscience and brain imaging, computer vision and robotics. The goal is to encourage dialogue using a common language of computational techniques that allow us to extract informative signals from rich biological data and design artificial systems with practical applications.

Confirmed speakers:

Zoe Kourtzi (Chair)

Nikolaus Kriegeskorte, MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit

Andrew Welchman, Psychology

Andrew Fitzgibbon, Microsoft Research

Scott Yang, Engineering

Andy Thwaites, Psychology/MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit
