STEM Scholars Lecture: Neural Networks

Thursday, September 20, 2012
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
University Union Redwood Room
Event Type



Sacramento State Computer Science Professor (and alum) V. Scott Gordon will deliver the first presentation of the fall 2012 STEM Scholars Lecture Series. His talk is titled "Neural Networks: The Quest for an Artificial Brain."

Artificial brains, more commonly called "neural networks," can learn and local industry right here in Sacramento is at the leading edge of this pioneering field! Although neural networks are considerably more primitive than our real brains, Gordon has taught these networks how to divide hard problems into smaller ones, learn by example, recognize patterns, and track moving objects. He will discuss his research and work with neural networks and provide some real-world applications ranging from adaptive optics to offshore fish sorting.
