Wolf Singer and Hannah Monyer

  • The competition for intelligence
  • Artificial versus natural systems
  • Geist Heidelberg, In dialogue

Artificial Intelligence research and development continues to advance, but does it live up to its name?
The world’s foremost neuroscientist, Wolf Singer, vehemently disagrees…
vehemently. Every thought and every natural perception is the result of millions of connections in the human brain. Artificial intelligences, however, lack the essential characteristics of natural neuronal networks. This means that they lack the ability to develop new ideas.
Together with Hannah Monyer, he explores the question in dialogue: Can’t artificial intelligence do much more than correlate, connect and select alternatives?
