Oxford University, Computer Science & Nuffield Clinical Neurosciences, Advisors : Thomas Lukasiewicz and Rafal Bogacz

Yuhang Song is a fourth-year DPhil (Ph.D.) student in Computer Science & Nuffield Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Oxford, working with Prof. Thomas Lukasiewicz and Prof. Rafal Bogacz at Intelligent Systems group and Models of Brain Decision Networks group.

Yuhang’s research focuses on deciphering and extracting the learning principles of biological neural systems, so as to reverse-engineer them as algorithms or even specialized hardware. Such a route of research would, on the one hand, bring us one step closer to true artificial intelligence that facilitates our daily life, and, on the other hand, improve our understanding of the most sophisticated part of our body, the brain, so that diseases related to learning, and broadly, to neural systems, can be better understood and treated.

Yuhang received his Bachelor of Science degree in Electronic Information Engineering from Beihang University.
