Biography

Jianqiao Ge is a lecturer at the Academic for Advanced Interdisciplinary Studies (AAIS), Peking University. Her research interests are focused on scientific studies of brain intelligence and social cognition. Ge received her Ph.D. in psychology, B.S in physics, a double B.S in mathematics and applied mathematics, and a double B.S in economics from Peking University. She was also a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Chicago and the Principal Investigator / Co-Investigator of more than 10 research grants supported by the Ministry of Science and Technology of China, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, and Beijing Municipal Science & Technology Commission.

Ge has published more than 20 peer-reviewed articles on leading academic journals such as PNAS, the Journal of Neuroscience, and has been awarded two national patents. In 2008, by scanning the human brain with functional MRI, Ge and her collaborator were among the first to confirm that the human brain engages distinct neurocognitive strategies to comprehend human intelligence and artificial intelligence.

At the Berggruen Institute, Ge will explore the challenges and opportunities on how the human brain understands artificial intelligence from an interdisciplinary perspective, how the brain and cognition are influenced by frontier technologies and new forms of intelligence, as well as how it might adaptively evolute to cope with a “hybrid” society in the future.


葛鉴桥

葛鉴桥现任北京大学前沿交叉学科研究院讲师,北京大学心理学博士、物理学学士、数学与应用数学双学士、经济学双学士,曾在美国芝加哥大学进行博士后研究工作,目前主要专注于大脑智能与认知功能的研究,主持并参加多项国家自然科学基金项目、北京市科委脑计划重大专项等,在国际前沿期刊如PNAS等发表多篇论文,曾获两项国家发明专利。2008年葛鉴桥与合作者通过脑功能成像研究率先提出人脑使用不同的认知神经策略理解并看待人类智能与人工智能这两种形式的智能。她在博古睿中心的工作将以交叉学科视角探讨“人类大脑理解人工智能:挑战与机遇”,审视人类大脑与认知如何受到前沿技术和新的智能形式的影响,以及人脑在应对未来社会时可能的适应性发展方向。
