Guest Lecture by Carmen Paz Suárez Araujo
In the well occupied auditorium HS3, students, external experts, and university employees alike listened to guest lecturer Carmen Paz Suárez Araujo’s captivating talk about "New Insights in Computational Neuroscience and Neural Computation Based Decision Support Systems" last Thursday.
Carmen Paz Suárez Araujo is the head of the Neural and Adaptive Computation and Computational Neuroscience (COMCIENCIA) Research Group at the Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain. Among other things, her group has developed an interesting new neural architecture that models the brain more closely, called HUMANN, which is suitable for blind clustering and data mining. HUMANN has been successfully applied in a variety of fields, for instance to identify fungicides or pollutants in the environment and to build decision support systems for dementia diagnosis. We wish to thank Carmen Paz Suárez Araujo for her visit to Upper Austria and are looking forward to further collaboration opportunities between our research groups.
