In this episode of the AI Podcast, Lex Fridman interviews Paola Arlotta.
Paola Arlotta is a professor of stem cell and regenerative biology at Harvard University.
You could say that she studies “naturally intelligent” systems.
Specifically, she is interested in understanding the molecular laws that govern the birth, differentiation and assembly of the human brain’s cerebral cortex. She explores the complexity of the brain by studying and engineering elements of how the brain develops.
