Neural Networks for Machine Learning: A Symposium

April 28, 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM


The School of Engineering and Applied Science is honored to co-organize, with Drexel University and the Franklin Institute, a symposium to honor the Bower Awardee, Kunihiko Fukushima, the inventor of the Neocognitron. Dr. Fukushima joins a list of many distinguished laureates of the Franklin Institute.


Dr. Fukushima has received the Bower Award “for his pioneering research that applied principles of neuroscience to engineering through his invention of the first deep convolutional neural network, “Neocognitron”—a key contribution to the development of artificial intelligence.”
