Adaptive Neuromorphics, Intelligence, Memory, and Unified Systems

The Adaptive Neuromorphics, Intelligence, Memory, and Unified Systems (ANIMUS) lab seeks to understand the nature of cognition through the use of computational models and artificial intelligence.

Work in the lab focuses on developing new kinds of artificial neural networks, neural models, and cognitive architectures inspired by cutting-edge developments in artificial intelligence and cognitive science.

In particular, we are interested in examining the ways current AI falls short of emulating human behaviour and cognition and how the current gulf between AI and natural minds can potentially be bridged.

ANIMUS lab’s principal investigator is Dr. Mary Kelly¬†of the Department of Cognitive Science.
