Learning intelligent computing from living cells

Gordana Dodig-Crnkovic, Professor of Computer Science, Chalmers Technical University | University of Gothenburg & Mälardalen University, Sweden, held as Guest Professor at TU Wien on 15 May 2024, 16:00-17:30 CEST, at Campus Gußhaus a public lecture in the Current Trends in Computer Science Lecture Series, Informatics Doctoral School, on exploring information processing in living organisms to better understand their “computing mechanisms”:

Through the study of biological processes optimized by evolution, we seek to enhance the effectiveness, resilience, agency, and energy efficiency of future computation. Understanding the brain, nervous system, and their interaction with the environment is crucial for the development of artificial intelligence and computational cognition. This learning process is bidirectional, resulting in a deeper understanding of both nature and possible future technology.

Gordana intends to explain why informational modeling of living systems is not transhumanism, but digital humanism. She is Board Member of the International Society for the Study of Information (IS4SI) and affiliated with our GSIS Emergent Systems Group.
