What is LSC?

LSC, which stands for Life, Structure, and Cognition, is an initiative with the aim of learning about the latest advancements and of exploring the modalities for cooperative progress between Biology and Artificial Intelligence, as is already starting to take place under our eyes. The goal is to investigate how biological systems evolved cognitive functions, using AI both as a concept toolbox and as a tool, and in turn, investigate how biological systems can serve as models to understand and stimulate new progress in AI.

The idea of LSC is an annual evaluation, expert discussion, and lecture series on the key topics and latest advancements in these directions, thus the Life and Cognition components of LSC. Structure in this LSC epithet refers to Mathematics and how it might and must help process and formalize aspects of these advancements.
