Sander Bohté is a senior researcher in the CWI Machine Learning group and also a part-time professor at the University of Amsterdam and the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen. His research bridges the field of neuroscience with applications thereof in artificial intelligence as advanced neural networks. His work has been pioneering in the development of advanced and efficient spiking neural networks, and recent work has also developed biologically plausible deep learning and deep reinforcement learning models for neural network cognition. Together, his work is illuminating how the brain achieves the feats that deep learning does for AI.
