Two groups of people – neurosurgeons and computer scientists – were sniffing at one another’s research on Monday at the first annual workshop on computational brain research at IIT Madras to find mutually beneficial applications. “This is the beginning for our collaboration,” said Infosys co-founder and IIT-M alumnus, Kris Gopalakrishnan, who has set up three chairs for Centre for Computational Brain Research at IIT-Madras and funded the brain research centre at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc). “Brain research would help us develop super computers with artificial intelligence. If we want computers to function with a similar capacity…
