International Master Program “Computational Neuroscience” successfully re-accredited

The “Master Program Computational Neuroscience”, which started in October 2006 at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin (BCCN Berlin), has successfully been re-accredited by the system accreditation commission of the Technische Universität Berlin (TU Berlin) and is accredited until June 8, 2028. The “Zentrale Evaluations- und Akkreditierungsagentur (ZEvA)” (Central Evaluation and Accreditation Agency) assigned in July 2021 the right of system accreditation to the TU Berlin. Thus, the TU Berlin can accredit their study programs with an internal commission.

Beyond Explainable AI: Wojciech Samek and Klaus-Robert Mueller published new book on Explainable AI

To tap the full potential of artificial intelligence, not only do we need to understand the decisions it makes, these insights must also be made applicable. This is the aim of the new book "xxAI - Beyond Explainable AI”, edited by Wojciech Samek, head of the Artificial Intelligence department at the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI), and Klaus-Robert Mueller, professor of machine learning at the Technical University of Berlin (TUB) and director at BIFOLD. The publication is based on a workshop held during the International Conference on Machine Learning in 2020. Co-editors also include AI experts Andreas Holzinger, Randy Goebel, Ruth Fong and Taesep Moon. It is already the second publication by Samek and Mueller.

How the brain forms visual maps

Our brains have multiple maps that are needed to plan our movements, navigate our environments, and perceive the world through our senses. The brain maps of our visual world have been studied with greatest detail and provide an opportunity to understand how other brain maps form, organize and function.

Estimating the pace of change

An international team of researchers from Tübingen and Cold Spring Harbor (New York) has found a pioneering way of determining at what pace changes typically happen. The new method avoids previous systematic errors in estimating timescales, for example of neural activity in the brain. The results are now being published in the journal Nature Computational Science; first applications of the method to neural recordings from the visual cortex highlight it as a powerful tool for neuroscience and many other disciplines.
