#9: On origins of computational neuroscience and AI as scientific fields – with Terrence Sejnowski (vintage)

Today’s guest is a pioneer both in the fields of computational neuroscience and artificial intelligence (AI) and has had a front seat during their development. 

His many contributions include, for example, the invention of the Boltzmann machine with David Ackley and Geoff Hinton in the 1980s and independent component analysis (ICA) with Anthony Bell in the 1990s. 

In this “vintage” episode recorded in late 2019 he describes the joint births of these adjacent scientific fields and outlines how they came about.
