Jannis Born

ETH Zürich, Switzerland
Neural Systems & Computation


With a background in Cognitive Science, I enjoy using and developing computational models seeking to understand cognitive phenomena and mechanisms of neuronal computation. I’m hoping for a summer school densely packed with 
educationally worthwhile content.

As a Cognitive Scientist by training and a neuroscientist by profession I am passionate about the human mind and all the recent developments in artificial intelligence. I’m looking forward to an exciting week of research and learning.

There are no surprising facts, only models that are surprised by facts; and if a model is surprised by the facts, it is no credit to that model.

Having studied Cognitive Science and working on visual development in infants, I am interested in how humans acquire their perceptual abilities and what computational principles are underlying it. I am looking forward to explore the theme of intuition in education at IICCSSS.
