Brain and mind scientist and AI practitioner and visionary. He’s foremost interested in i) closing the mind-body explanatory gap, and ii) using that knowledge to improve machine learning and AI. His work on brain research at Max Planck led him to develop the theory of practopoiesis. From there he proposed the concept of AI-Kindergarten — a method for creation of biological-like artificial intelligence. Also, a few years back he introduced the concept of ideasthesia. Most recently, he’s active in applied machine learning and AI.
