Neuroscientist and Einstein Visiting Fellow Panayiota Poirazi builds computational models of the tree-like dendrites that exist in the brain to better understand their role and to translate their functions into artificial knowledge. One of her aims is to teach algorithms to base their learning on prior knowledge in the same way that humans do. Read more here.
