Neuroscience and artificial intelligence work better together. I interview experts about their work at the interface of neuroscience, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, philosophy, psychology, and more: the symbiosis of these overlapping fields, how they inform each other, where they differ, what the past brought us, and what the future brings. Topics include computational neuroscience, supervised machine learning, unsupervised learning, reinforcement learning, deep learning, convolutional and recurrent neural networks, decision-making science, AI agents, backpropagation, credit assignment, neuroengineering, neuromorphics, emergence, philosophy of mind, consciousness, general AI, spiking neural networks, data science, and a lot more. The show is not produced for a general audience. Instead, it aims to educate, challenge, inspire, and hopefully entertain those interested in learning more about neuroscience and AI.

Something to think about.

I am an interested layman of AI and brain science. This podcast is sometimes way over my head but still extremely interesting to me. I like the quiet no-hype, no-nonsense presentation of Paul Middlebrook. I am currently only at the fourth episode and hope it continues in the same vein. Recommended for anyone with a functioning and curious brain.

Great In-Depth Discussions

I’m a third year undergraduate psychology student interested in pursuing neuroscience in grad school.

This is one of the most informative and enjoyable podcasts that I listen to. Always feels like I come out on the other end of an episode with a new insight or perspective. I particularly appreciate the emphasis that the host places on the more philosophically difficult questions that many professionals in the field prefer to avoid, such as the relationship between consciousness and cognition.

I recommend this to anyone interested in psychology, neuroscience, or AI.

One of the best

This is one of my favorite podcasts, and one of the 2 or 3 I support financially. Nicely produced, good length, and plenty of depth without being incomprehensible (usually!) I’d rather have the depth though. I am not personally a researcher but intensely follow this topic as a layperson. Thanks for the podcast and keep it up!
