Jung Lee, a senior data scientist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), has been selected to serve as guest editor for a Frontiers special issue focused on how microcircuits work in the brain and in artificial intelligence.
Pulling from the fields of neuroscience and deep learning, the collection of articles will feature research that advances the understanding of biological and artificial neural systems, as well as highlight new theories, methods, and analysis tools for studying the structure and functions of microcircuits.
Frontiers is an open access publisher of peer-reviewed research articles and one of the largest and highest-cited publishers in the world. Abstract submissions for the special research topic issue, “Functional Microcircuits in the Brain and in Artificial Intelligent Systems,” are being accepted through May 10, 2022, and full manuscripts are due July 9, 2022.
Lee, who proposed the research topic and built the editorial team for the special issue, conducts artificial intelligence research in support of PNNL’s national security mission. His research interests lie in the areas of artificial neural networks and computational neuroscience, with a focus on developing machine learning models and algorithms for safer and more explainable artificial intelligence. He holds a PhD in physics from the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
