Project title: Bio-inspired artificial neural networks. Project is carried out within the TEAM-NET programme of the Foundation for Polish Science.

Advanced approaches in machine learning such as deep learning show a number of undesirable features, such as forgetfulness, susceptibility to adversarial examples, the requirement for a large training set, and slow learning. Most of these features do not occur in biological systems, thus it would be beneficial to take an inspiration from them to help training artificial systems. The aim of the project is to analyze high-level behaviors of biological neural systems and to build innovative artificial models by proposing new paradigms of learning and new architectures of computational models.

The Jagiellonian University will run six research groups: Cognitive group, Physics-group, Machine-learning group, Neuro-group, BioDataScience-group, InfoTech-group.

We seek for a PhD Student of the BioDataScience group.

The responsibility of the potential contractor shall be:

1. analysis of large sets of neuronal data,

2. numerical cross-check of the models of correlations.
