Our speaker at our April monthly meetup will be David DeMaris. David DeMaris has worked in computer design software, computational neuroscience, computer vision, social robotics, music, visuals, theatrical sound design, and DJing. His Ph.D. work was on similarity and object invariance using time-varying oscillating networks.
David will be giving us a talk on the relationship between rhythms and collective intelligence, with an emphasis on the trends in the neuroscience of shared intentions. How does the brain coordinate diverse elements into intelligent higher level systems? Does the internet or goverment act like a mind? Is it sane or crazy? How should humans and AI relate? If the brain depends on rhythms, would rhythms make society and organizations function more smoothly?
The meetup will be at Capital Factory at 7:00pm on Monday, April 11th.
