Type: Lecture
Title: Brain development and self-construction technology
is_program_session: True

The physical implementation of today's technologies (very much including neuromorphic electronics) depends almost entirely on external (to the instantiated object) factories. By contrast, biological systems construct, repair, and evolve, themselves.

This discussion will consider issues such as:

  • Self-construction vs self-assembly etc.
  • Comparison of external factory  vs self-constructing systems 
  • Could self-construction be relevant to future neuromorphic technologies?
  • CNS development as an example of self-constructing computing systems.
  • What can we learn from biology about self-constructing systems?
  • Constructive (vs reductive) connectomics
  • etc
