A research institute dedicated to enabling innovative work on a wide variety of themes.

Featured Project

Canonical Neural Computation

Led by Anthony Movshon, this project studies neural computations that appear in many different species and brain regions, suggesting that a set of common algorithms forms a basic repertoire that is used in many different brains. Many of these computations have also found a place in artificial intelligence research, suggesting that brain-like computations can inform and promote progress in building intelligent machines.
