The group recently attended the DataNinja Spring School, held online from the 23rd to 25th of March. The Spring School was organized by the University of Bielefeld and focused on “Artificial Intelligence – perspectives and challenges”. Maribel Acosta held a talk on “Symbolic and Sub-symbolic Representations of Knowledge Graphs”
The Institut für Neuroinformatik (INI) is a central research unit of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. We aim to understand the fundamental principles through which organisms generate behavior and cognition while linked to their environments through sensory systems and while acting in those environments through effector systems. Inspired by our insights into such natural cognitive systems, we seek new solutions to problems of information processing in artificial cognitive systems. We draw from a variety of disciplines that include experimental approaches from psychology and neurophysiology as well as theoretical approaches from physics, mathematics, electrical engineering and applied computer science, in particular machine learning, artificial intelligence, and computer vision.
