AI and neuroscience: The virtuous circle – DeepMind: The Podcast (Season 1, Episode 1)

Selected as “New and Noteworthy” by Apple Podcasts, the highly-praised, award-nominated first season of “DeepMind: The Podcast” explores the fascinating world of artificial intelligence (AI). Join mathematician and broadcaster Hannah Fry as she meets world-class scientists and thinkers as they explain the foundations of AI, explore some of the challenges the field is wrestling with, and dives into the research that’s led to breakthroughs like AlphaGo and AlphaFold. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced researcher, join our journey into the past, present, and future of AI.

In this episode, mathematician Hannah Fry asks what the human brain can teach us about AI — and what AI can teach us about our own intelligence. These questions underpin much AI research, whether playing video games or working to improve health care.

Listen in as members of DeepMind’s neuroscience team explain the importance of memory, imagination, and rewards in building artificial general intelligence (AGI). And learn how our brains are like birds’ wings, what training a dog and an AI agent have in common, and why the simplest things for people to do are, paradoxically, often the hardest for machines.

“We get this virtuous cycle between neuroscience, cognitive science, and AI because we are trying to study the same thing, which is intelligence”. – Jess Hamrick, Research Scientist at DeepMind
