Mainly online-teaching this fall

Stockholm University follows the recommendations of the Public Health Agency and the government's decision to ban public events and public gatherings with over 50 participants. Teaching will mainly be conducted online (with some exceptions). You can stay up-to-date by checking our website where you will also find the course schedule, as well as the student platform Athena. These arrangements are subject to change with short notice should new guidelines be published by the government.

ERC funding for research into human cognition and generalising artificial intelligence

Artificial neural networks can be trained to handle information in a similar way to the human brain. A crucial difference is that these are not as flexible as the brain. With the support of an ERC Starting Grant, Mikael Lundqvist at the Department of Psychology will learn to understand the neural mechanisms behind the ability of primates to generalise and create flexible artificial networks.
