The symposium was a huge success, with outstanding participation from universities and research institutes around the world. The movies of lectures (upon approval by the speaker) and discussions are now available from Vimeo.

The aim of this symposium is to bring together researchers advancing the forefront of AI and neuroscience to identify next targets in creating brain-like intelligence and further advancing neuroscience. Following the big success of the first symposium held in October 2020 online (movies available from Vimeo), this time we are holding the symposium at OIST in an on-site/online hybrid format as a satellite event for Neuro2022 in Okinawa.
