New Blog Section... Neuroscience
Welcome to the new section Neuroscience!
I always wanted to be involved in some research field. I'm a self-taught dev and I quit my undergrad studies to start my coding career.
I've never felt that I have the necessary background to start on any research field. I like to read books about physics some years ago and neuroscience lately. When reading this stuff, I always felt that there're so many doors open and things to discover that thrilled me.
The last few years I learnt about machine learning. When you go deep in the AI trends you realize that this field has a lot of bottlenecks. As in other research fields, a lot of open doors exist.
The idea to learn about the brain to apply its principles in the machine learning world thrills me! Then, why not?
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today
If I never start, I'll never have the background I need to work on these things for sure.
This is why I decided to start my own path in neuroscience. For now, I'm designing my own learning route based on online courses, books and papers.
What is this section for?
The very first goal of this new section is to keep me engaged. Sharing my progress will enforce me to follow the path.
Secondly, trying to explain what I'm learning on the way will help me to measure my level of understanding of the different topics and ideas.
Finally, this section will be my place to post my notes and thoughts on the courses I'll take, books and papers I'll read on the way.
My first post will be about the book that encouraged me to start to follow this goal. "On Intelligence" by Jeff Hawkins and Sandra Blakeslee
In the meantime...
I leave here some of my favorites podcasts I usually listen about neuroscience and AI.
Brain Inspired by Paul Middlebrooks
A podcast where neuroscience and AI converge.
Lex Fridman Podcast
Conversations about science, technology, history, philosophy and the nature of intelligence, consciousness, love, and power. Formerly called Artificial Intelligence (AI Podcast)
