Math-oriented scientists like Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) Professor Partha Mitra are leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to map out the human brain’s complex connections. In this discussion, Mitra answered audience questions about how AI is likely to become more human-like, the remarkably distributed architecture of the octopus brain, and how understanding brain connections can bring medical and technological breakthroughs.

Partha Mitra is a Crick-Clay Professor of Biomathematics at CSHL and holds a Distinguished Chair in Computational Brain Research at IIT Madras. His work involves mapping brain circuits in animals and understanding how intelligent machines, either biological or human-engineered, work.
