Today we're joined by Michael Levin, Director of the Allen Discovery Institute at Tufts University.
Michael joined us back at NeurIPS to discuss his invited talk "What Bodies Think About: Bioelectric Computation Beyond the Nervous System as Inspiration for New Machine Learning Platforms." In our conversation, we talk about synthetic living machines, novel AI architectures and brain-body plasticity. Michael explains how our DNA doesn't control everything and how the behavior of cells in living organisms can be modified and adapted. Using research on biological systems dynamic remodeling, Michael discusses the future of developmental biology and regenerative medicine.
