Whether humans can understand their own brain has been a difficult question even for contemporary neuroscience. However, the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) may improve our under-standing of the human brain in the future. But can humans understand AI? Will AI ever surpass our understanding of humans? This dialogue will bring together experts in respective fields of AI and neuroscience to exchange their thoughts, followed by a discussion and Q&A.
