The human brain is an important part of the central nervous system, functionally and formally achieving the highest unification, and controlling sensibility, decision-making and originality. Professor Jaeseung Jeong, an expert in Brain Engineering, will be sharing with us the future of Human understanding in the age of artificial intelligence.
Jeong, a bio and brain engineering associate professor who originally majored in physics at KAIST, received a Ph.D. from the alma mater with a thesis on computational modeling of Alzheimer’s brains. Years of expanded his study to psychiatry when he worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Yale University School of Medicine and an assistant professor at Columbia University.
His main research topics include human decision-making, brain-robot interface and brain dynamics.
Having been recognized for his work, Jeong was picked as one of “Young Global Leaders” at the World Economic Forum held in Davos, Switzerland, in 2009.
He became a public figure with a series of best-seller books on science and psychology that fluently elaborated on the otherwise perplexing concepts of the fields.
