Welcome to the Neural Networks Research Group web site.

The group is directed by Prof. Risto Miikkulainen and is located at the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin.



Science podcasts have become popular during the pandemic, and we have done a number of them. On top of the list is Risto's 2-hr interview in the Lex Fridman podcast. He also discussed the XPRIZE Pandemic Response Challenge in The Pulse of AI podcast with winners Nuria Oliver and Mitja Lustrek, and co-organized a series of five podcasts with Stephanie Forrest, Joydeep Ghosh, Babak Hodjat, Quoc Le, and Jordan Pollack. Padmini Rajagopalan discussed her work on emergence of cooperation in the College of Natural Sciences podcast, and Risto earlier appeared in the Biotech Podcast, Futucast, and This Week in Machine Learning. Podcasts can make science topics more live and personal while we wait for return to in-person talks.
