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."
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.
