Cluster Colloquium "Machine Learning"
Lecture: Reverse-engineering Drosophila action selection and movement control
A shared goal of neuroscience and robotics is to understand how systems can be built to move effectively and autonomously through the world. However, state-of-the-art algorithms for selecting and executing limb behaviors in robots are still quite primitive compared with those used by animals.
To inform the design of artificial systems, we are investigating how the fly, Drosophila melanogaster, selects and controls its behaviors and how this process can be modulated by learning. Prof. Pavan Ramdya will discuss how we are pursuing this research program using a combination of machine learning, microscopy, and modeling.
