Talks on the Basics of Neuroscience: Dr. Sabah Mohammed

March 23, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

The AI Revolution: Why Brain Architecture is Suddenly Changing Your Life

Over the past few years, we have doubtlessly noticed quantum leaps in the quality and smartness of a wide range of everyday technologies. Intelligent machines powered by AI that can learn, reason and interact with people are no longer science fiction.

Today, a self-driving car powered by AI can meander through a country road at night and find its way. An AI-powered robot can learn motor skills through trial and error. Today, we stand at the beginning of the next era, the AI computing era, ignited by new computing models that are inspired by human brain architecture.

Dr. Mohammed will introduce his thoughts on how manufacturing in the current era has benefited from the Brain Architecture Models (e.g. Right-Brain Creativity Senses, Neural Networks and Neuroplasticity). These models and principles inspired by our brain architecture have been adopted in the industry to revolutionize the manufacturing process in what is currently called the “fourth industrial revolution,” or “Industry 4.0”.

DATE: Friday, March 23rd

TIME: 4:30-5:30pm


Dr. Sabah Mohammed researches intelligent systems that operate in large, nondeterministic, cooperative, survivable, adaptive or partially known domains. He completed his PhD at Brunel University London UK, working on the employment of some Brain Activity Structure-based techniques for decision making (planning and learning) in developing intelligent machines. Currently, his research interests include Digital Health, Internet of Things, Big Data Management, Web, Mobile and Cloud based Artificial Intelligence, and Health Data interoperability and Security.

Dr. Mohammed is a distinguished researcher and a professional engineer who has won many awards, most recently a Merit Award on Excellence in Teaching and Research from Lakehead University. In addition to his professorship at Lakehead University, he holds an adjunct position with the University of Western Ontario, is the director of the Northern Ontario Web Intelligence Research Group, and serves as Editor in Chief for four academic journals including the IGI Global Extreme Connectivity and Automation in Healthcare.
