On Friday July 3rd, Prof. Danielle Bassett will be giving a talk on ‘Networks thinking themselves’.
The talk will be hosted at 4 pm, while at 5.15 pm we will host a virtual pub chat with the speaker. Further details on how to join both sessions will be sent through our mailing list! To join our mailing list, follow the instructions here https://cortexclub.com/join-us/
Human learners acquire not only disconnected bits of information, but complex interconnected networks of relational knowledge. The capacity for such learning naturally depends on the architecture of the knowledge network itself, and also on the architecture of the computational unit – the brain – that encodes and processes the information. Here, I will discuss emerging work assessing network constraints on the learnability of relational knowledge, and the neural correlates of that learning.
