Neural Networks for Machine Learning: A Symposium to Honor Kunihiko Fukushima, Recipient of the 2021 Bower Award and Prize for Achievement in Science
The College of Engineering is honored to co-organize, with the University of Pennsylvania 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 – of these over 121 laureates have later received the Nobel Prize.
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.”
