Birkbeck’s Centre for Cognition, Computation, and Modelling unites research spanning the breadth of modelling techniques and frameworks employed in the study of human behaviour. Based at Birkbeck’s Department of Psychological Sciences, the Centre includes world-leading researchers from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines interested in computational methods and models as theoretical and practical tools for understanding the functioning of mind and brain.

DeepMind Technologies                                         

At DeepMind, our mission is to solve intelligence and then use that to make the world a better place. Our motivation in all we do is to maximise the positive and transformative impact of AI. We believe that AI should ultimately belong to the world, in order to benefit the many and not the few, and we steadfastly research, publish and implement our work to that end.
We view cognitive psychology and neuroscience as invaluable sibling disciplines, which can advance AI by providing pivotal insights, and which can benefit in turn from AI research. In line with this perspective, we count many neuroscientists and psychologists among our key personnel.
