Learning and memory in biological brains are the result of plasticity and adaptivity at the level of cells and synapses. Although it is largely unknown how the underlying processes are coordinated and controlled at the level of brain networks, the fascinating efficiency of biological brains has long inspired research in artificial intelligence. New engineering applications of bio-inspired strategies and sophisticated algorithms combined with massive computational resources have produced learning machines with unprecedented performance. Can engineers learn from biology how to make these algorithms more resource-efficient and robust? What can biological research learn from the impressive advances in Big Data technology? Can novel applications of these algorithms advance research in neuroscience?
