Event Description

How does the brain cope with complexity? How do we make decisions when confronted with practically infinite streams of information? 

The conference showcases cutting-edge research on these questions in neuroscience and psychology (neural mechanisms of cognitive control, exploration, decision-making, information demand, memory, and creativity), computer science (artificial intelligence of curiosity and intrinsic motivation), and economics (decision-making and information demand). Alongside formal presentations, the conference will encourage ample interactions among faculty, students, and postdocs through informal discussions and poster presentations.
