The study of grid cells has been one of the most exciting areas of neuroscience over the past decade. In this Brains@Bay meetup, we are focusing on grid cells and how they act as an inspiration for machine learning architectures. We are thrilled to invite a great lineup of speakers that will present their exciting work on grid cells. Reserve your spot here.

Title: Grid cell intro + Quickly forming structured memories

➤ James Whittington, University of Oxford
Title: Generalisation in the hippocampal formation

➤ Kimberly Stachenfeld, Research Scientist at DeepMind
Title: TBD

The talks will be followed by a discussion panel and Q&A where Tim Behrens (University of Oxford) will join.  Join our Meetup group for more updates on this event. More details to follow soon.

We look forward to seeing you there!
